Exorcizing The Monster

-And on that day

White became my enemy-

In spatters, drops shouted out-

A Jackson Pollock masterpiece

Convergence

Divergence

All misaligned

When all colors faded

-And on that day

I was…

The woman who became faceless

Nameless

An actor upon-

Stage 4

-And on that day

My body an aberration

Inhabited by that Monster

Avarice-

Unforgiving-

-And on that day

The exorcist arrived…

Radiation

Chemotherapy

Lumpectomy?

Mastectomy?

-And on that day

I played the actor

Stage 4

Desperately clinging

To the very last-

When I could learn to love

…Jackson Pollock once again!
