Parasitic Predator

what is cancer?
deprivation
of energy
a hole inside me
parasite feeding on me;
eradicate it
silent predator
devours in voracious stealth;
abstracted nature
alien feeding
slowly extracting my soul;
I will not die yet
perseverance pays…
treatment begets results:
rejoice! hope restored

I present a collaboration between myself and my good friend, Patricia Spork. This haiku sequence (mixture of modern and traditional) was written last year between us.
