Self-Examination
Elaine Terranova

He might be tethered 

like an animal, kept from where

he wants to be. A big man,

nearing sixty. He sits and sweats, 

though the room is air-conditioned.

His mouth a little open, he is reading

the sign on the door marked Radiology.

He is half up to go after her,

 

thinking of this life 

of hers. The lapses in the love--

his love-- which cushions it. 

The mutilating surgery and drugs 

that sting the organism so it 

draws back into itself, counterforce

to the disease. Whatever she has suffered 

away from him in other rooms.
