Read an Excerpt


Last summer, while the healthy

were out picnicking and dashing

skip-ily across crosswalks, I was making

friends with a spider who had taken

up residence in a corner

outside my window. She was fast

and brutal, would wait for sunset

when the bugs came out and then

pounce. I watched her suck the life

outa the heads of several bees

while I cheered. Until the day a ladybug

clearly out past curfew, started

waddling across the window

towards the web. I considered

tapping on the glass

to warn the lady, but

then I thought, why should just

the pretty survive? Who am I

to re-route fate? So, I did nothing

but watch life dish up life's

terms. Me, sick and brutally

awed in my pink chemotherapy gown

watching as God marched

that lady nine inches two inches three

millimeters away

from the web,

when to my marvel

at the velocity of life,

there in the twilight,

she flew.
