they scooped out a spot
high on my thigh that used to be
shaped like a

and i know it’s all going to come
back clean because nothing
ever amounts to anything
but $50 copays
and our share of the bill,

but i miss it,
that little tiny heart
I found just a few months ago
on my own

      This one really is no big deal, Misky. My new skin doc’s not at all worried about it. It’s just weird how you can miss a mark on your body that you didn’t even realize you had, until a few months ago. šŸ˜‰

  2. $50 copays? That’s ridiculous. I would love to rant here about healthcare and its costs, but just suffice it to say that I thank God every day that I do not have to rely on the healthcare system, and I sincerely want to make that last as long as possible. It’s way too expensive for everyone and anyone.
    But the poem – a heart shape – you’d figure that’d be a lucky spot, not one that needed to be dug away! But I’m glad they got it.
