Chemo Girl Dances With Me: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Haiku

January 6, 2011

New Year’s Eve I danced with a friend’s granddaughter — who was in the final, exhausting stages of hospital-phase chemotherapy. We rocked the house! I think it may have been the best New Year’s Eve dance I ever have had… and I wrote this about her a few days later.

The sick that gives her/
a shiny moon head cant kill/
the light in her eyes.

PS: She’s 5 years old.

Breast Cancer Vision: a revolutionary email sonnet

February 19, 2009

She gazed
at the lens
not with rage
nor sorrow, not again.

This time
is hers.
Strong, sublime;
she conquers.

Controls the pain,
walks her own path.
Determined again;
Keeps life in her grasp.

I know her only through another’s lens;
I weep, and embrace visions of a friend.

[Thank you for the opportunity
to be witness to a fight
which so deeply moves me.]
