Pieces of Us by Dalia Astalos

Poem

They take pieces of us
Off the table
Cutting slices
Needles inserted
Like turkey breast
Our blood drips like gravy
Onto sharp blue sheets
We lie there
Unconscious and
Grateful
To be poked and prodded
Grateful that it hurts
To be alive
To walk again under
blue sky
