The Cancer Took Her

A poem from our book, A Beautiful Violation. Art by Marco Mazzoni.

Marco Marzonni1

 

THE CANCER TOOK HER

Love like shattered night
We retract sincere statements

Our words fall heavy
Cursing a regretful past

The cancer devours apologies
I grovel before retreating death

Another Los Angeles summer
Sleeping with angelic ashes
