Terminal

15
Am I going to die?
Well,
It’s hard to say.
So many factors.
We’ll know more when

38
What will I tell my children?
There are resources.
There are folks,
experts,
You are not alone.

61
Why couldn’t it be me?
We always thought
I’d be the first
to go.
I don’t want her to be alone.

84
I’m dying.
We’re all dying.
I’m just a little closer to you.
Nervous laughter
Present silence.
