Excerpt

i phone. let my sisters

 

know that Dr. Kanashiro tells me

 

they are now at risk, in that strange

 

mathematics by which

 

my illness has made them more 

 

vulnerable.

 

 

 

yes, yes, one sister says. i understand.

 

and the other, i’ll book a mammogram

 

and the third, well, my friend had a 

 

mastectomy, and she’s just fine.

 

 

 

my neighbour visits. do you 

 

want to see, i say. do you

 

want to show me? yes,

 

yes i do. i want to show you,

 

i want to scream naked

 

thru the streets and run

 

and run and run, one breast

 

flapping.

 

 

 

then they’ll see, won’t they

 

then they’ll see.
