growth

A constriction in his throat
is lozange shaped
maybe a tumor?

the beginning stages
something sinister?

Inside his blood
attached with pins and hooks
to cell walls.

And they want to replace his heart with a toy
imported from Taiwan,
plastic, red and
designed for kids.

with flashing lights,
which the Doctor says he’ll see
blinking through his skin.
