the chemo café

was at station 29

after walking past 1 through 28

i settled into the comfortable recliner

warm blanket and pillow

IV in the right forearm

the brown covered bag dripping toxatir into my vein

i caught a brief nap

while she went for food

after the IV was pulled out

and the mass of tubing taken away

we had California roll

coffee and pastry

whilst the chemo cancer war

progressed inside me

it was another good day
