Julie Ann in the Bone Marrow Unit, Zion, Illinois
Ah Dame, I don't know how else to love you
three floors below your hospital window,
and fly off, juggling cancer cells and carnations,
we snuck out of that alley in Maine.
dropping them all. I don't care.
So long as you stand near your hospital bed
From: Rybicki, John. "Julia Ann in the Bone Marrow Unit, Zion, Illinois", from We Bed Down to Water. Evanston: Northwestern University Press, 2007.
