Relative perspective

We’re sitting in the waiting room. It’s cold. Perhaps I should’ve put some more clothes on? Or something else ... You’re reading a magazine about gardens; you love gardening and you say that you were in the garden yesterday and moved your gladioli away from the lawn, so you could mow it.

There’s frost in the air

Nurse perspective

The nurse with the young wife of B

You sat there, young and pretty with your dark hair. You'd just entered the ward, so B could get his radiation treatment. Your body had an aura of anxiety and fatigue, but you wanted to talk. Talk between tears and rubbing hands. You sat uneasy in the chai

A feeling of joy welled up inside me. Actually it was a bit weird, given that I was going to have yet another bag of poison running into my body. But this time was the last time. After today, it couldn’t get any worse. Once this poison had killed what it should, I could start rebuilding myself
