Like a leech it waits for me to push my way through the mud of the week until I turn up for medication. A row of dentists chairs I take one Chemo Chemo Chemo All in a row And down the other side of the room too. She gets the leech thing out of its sterile bag now the mouth is wide open as it comes towards me wanting my blood. Now getting its pleasure by gorging on me I can tell by the silence. And all the while guided by a small and gentle hand so skilled at concealing its real intent. She even laughs a bit to distract me But I’m not fooled.
