Stevieslaw: Poem—Cancer

My poem, Cancer, is up on The Drabble today. Here is the poem and the link.

Cancer

“I’m still here”
you whisper,
in a voice as old as anguish,
barely discernible over
the din of the everyday—
scented like Sunday
with the musk
of onion-skinned prayer books
and the lingering
sadness of dusk.
