gone writers island #16 inception

eradicate forces
that invade bodies
sleep for years to forget
poison that circulates within

dream
triumvirate in final numbers
perform upon a trampoline
a dint of life

place a shilling to crossover . . .




*Well my brother Bill finally lost his battle
with cancer last night.
I just received the news today.
May he rest in peace

  3. I hate to think of cancer as a battle. There truly is nothing that anyone can do, except what they are advised. I am so sorry for the loss of your brother, Pamela. I send my deepest condolences to you and your family. Hugs from Diane T

  5. Pamela, heartfelt sympathy and hugs for you. And admiration for having the courage to post anything at all on your blog, let alone this awful news.

  6. May he rest in peace.

    I thought the poem did a good job of portraying the craziness, crazymaking of cancer...

  12. Stan thank you
    Back during napowrimo he was not supposed to last more than a couple of weeks.
    But I honestly feel his suffering is over although it is tough for us to deal with.
    I will miss him.

  16. 'I'm thinking sex with a gay man, not that it would be awful might be challenging:)
    This is your quote and your wonderful sense of humour! Appropriate? Tasteful? Now you know what it's like: it's called Karma.

  19. I just read this again. It is so beautiful. The image of poison running through the body is strong. You've got a way with words, Pamela, and many well wishers. It doesn't erase pain, but I believe that kindness always helps, and is never wasted.
