Kevin's Dead Cat

After surgery sliced off an entire tumor and 1/3 of my tongue, plus six weeks of radiation therapy, I've been re-learning how to eat, drink, and talk with my newly re-constructed tongue and coping with side effects. But the cancer came back and I don't know what's going to happen next.

I don't want life to imitate art. I want life to be art.

Candy says I've come to hate my body
 and all that it requires in this world
Candy says I'd like to know completely
 what others so discreetly talk about

Candy says I hate the quiet places
 that cause the smallest taste of what will be
Candy says I hate the big decisions
 that cause endless revisions in my mind

I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when I'm older
What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me
