The Third

one-two-three you're out
one-two-three, start
running, hide behind the tree
hide so the others can't find you
Hide and Seek, Ringaleveo
When I count to three
open your eyes, don't peek
one-two-three, what comes next

Today is your third chemo
sixteenth radiation
Can this only be the third week?
You can't run behind a tree, hide,
ask what comes next—you know,
two more

one-two-three
speed up time
