Poem #22 Thirty Poems in Thirty Days

What Did I Hear?

Your brother called to say
you don't want anyone to know

You said they found something
and said it's four centimeters
"cancer", the doctor said

Wednesday they'll do a biopsy
so how do they know
how do you know

Your brother said
"I'm flying to North Carolina"
that's a twenty hour flight

We both said, "Is this the truth?"
Too many lies in the past
to know a truth

This time I hope
it isn't the truth
