PERSPECTIVES ON CANCER #19: Radical Mastectomy

RADICAL MASTECTOMY

by

Cindy Taylor

I brought her home

and

The flowers came

From far and wide

For her

Shorn, severed body

lying

In our marriage bed

Iwouldn’t couldn’t didn’t

When she said

“touch me”

… that devastated landscape …

What

About

Me?
