On a bed attached to many wires, my body was prodded

by female hands, at my age, it was not everyday people touch me.

My heart sounded like an old steam-ship battling the waves off Greenland

seeking calmer water; as for my pacemaker, it sounded like

a pump in need of repair.

I fell asleep, which caused laughter from the staff; it is not often

happen to a patient.

Then it was over. I thanked the staff, the finding if any, will be delivered

by my doctor next week, she can also take a look at the lump

In the middle of the chest, the last time I was operated

for this, it was called cancer.
