Cancer Haiku, The Third

My body is a
foreign object forsaken
by my muddied mind

Cancer Haiku, The Second

Chemicals bombard
besiege and bamboozle my
poor body's beachheads

Cancer Haiku

Note:  I composed this on Twitter earlier today.
I decided it needed a more permanent home.
Written as a reflection upon my first round of chemo.

Cancer comes along.
Indifferently thuggish
a relentless brute.
