Yesterday a nurse surgically implanted a disk in my chest.
Tubes under skin stretch artery to neck.
The purpose? To bypass arm veins during Chemo and blood work.
Today, neck sore, movements limited and recovery stepped back.
Heart easily accessible for every new task.
I am projecting my future bald head and hairless face paired with this chest hole.
Nothing delayed by the step of finding a vein.
Port connecting immediately to my heart daily fears and hope funnelled directly in.
