What We Need



I have a cyst
In my face
It needs surgery
A scar
An explanation
The remembrance that scars
Are not the person.

My Dan has fluid
Under his lung
In his belly
It all needs removing
Understanding that the tides in a body don’t
Make the person.

We have our issues
In our bodies
We are growing older
And issues are part
Of the deal
That makes us who we are now
And spells our
Tender futures.
