Listen up, it’s only cancer.
Not something to get upset about.
Not a broom to sweep you off
your feet. It moves slowly.
You could say it almost drifts
like an iceberg. Mostly submerged.
Rides currents that you will never see.
Cheer up, it’s not going to swallow you
today. It’s a big project. Takes time.
Meanwhile splash in the shallows.
Stroll at sundown on golden sand.
Get yourself a beer from the fridge.
Some things are certain in this world.
That bottle. Ice-cold in your hand.
