And than we spoke of rabbits

From you I learned
Words like lanreotide.
Laparoscopic. Endocrine.

And you spoke of tortoises. Because
Your cancer is so slow.
Instead of thinking that gives you more time
I think of a tortoise’s size

I guess dad’s was a hare
Not the kind now on the floor
But. The speedy kind.
