HELLO CANCER


LET’S DANCE!

Did you see sunset burn
throughout the sky,
a crimson crucifix
to portend my descent?
Think not.

Did you phrophecy
as your eyesight grew dim,
Should Odin awaken?
and heed your call?

Did you fantasize a charm
to neuter the savage beast
while you stood chained at the feasting hour in man-made frocks?

What? That bear and wolf
would lay at your bound feet
their teeth and claws?

Did your faith waiver, yet fail
¹as your heartbeat froze
begging faint dawn to execute
it’s icy thaw?

Did you spit your prayers
to four cornered winds,
to keep your faith fulfilled
whispered downward hallelujahs ?

And what of the Thunder God?
Did you bring gifts enough
to move his hand o’er his fleet
calming seas, bloodied seas
that you might retreat?

Oh precious.faithful servant, come!
God’s are moved, your battle’s won!
Tears of Love now wash you clean!
no battles here left chance
Let’s pray the tumors gone!

Soooooo:
– let’s dance!
Put on your red shoes
and dance the blues.
lets dance!
