cancer

my heart and its slow beat

the world and its slow spin

time froze that week

blue eyes and white hair

my siblings’ faces

ten eyes all the same

turned barren;

“I have to talk to you

about my health”

and I think a pin dropped

and I think no one heard it

and I think my heart might have

stopped when it hit the ground.
