Cornucopia: The Shadow

The shadow


Shadow in my breast;

Lump in my throat;

Ache in my heart;

Fear in my gut;

Ice courses through veins;

Tears In my eyes;

Cold finger tips.


Memory of Mom;

Small lump;

Mutilating mastectomy ;

Silicone bra cup;

Body wastes away;

Silent disbelief;

Body curled in bed.


Modern three-D imaging

Detects a shadow;

Sonogram verification;

Lump in left breast;

Needle biopsy;

Results take forever;

The shadow is malignant.


The journey for my life has begun.
