Day 26 of 30


i cried today
a cry that felt like
like a barbell in the bottom

of my stomach
and a swallow crawling
up my throat

my father called me
to tell me the cancer
apparently didn’t

love him as much as I do
and i almost hung up
i got so hung up

    Last summer I watched my mother battle cervical cancer. I know that exact cry. I’m so glad your father is well. ❤
