Literary Corner (Cancer Edition)

A Poem Which I Have Wrote about My Cancer
by Michael Edward Mitchell, age 48

This is my radiation tan.



It follows my scar
as best it can

to kill the cancer
inside this man.

This is my radiation tan.

I meant to do this one a while ago, when I was really a lot redder, but got too busy to do the pic.  I think you can still see some of the color.  I think it's pretty noticeable, particularly from head on. One of my ears is definitely redder than the other.  The scar is really healing nicely now.
