Stick A Fork In Me!

It was time for my radiation treatment,

3:30, right on time, just like every weekday,

found me face up on a table

purple marker drawings all over my left side.

The X-Ray machine was circling,

targeting any lurking cancer cells,

when it stopped.

A familiar beeping sound echoed in the room.

As I lay there, eyes closed, and listened,

I realized that the sound I was hearing

was the same beeping sound our microwave makes

when what is cooking is done. 

Head over to Kat Bouska's Writer's Workshop and check out the the other fun stories!  The prompt I chose was:    1. Write a blog post in exactly 12 lines.


  1. I love your sense of humor! I need to share this with a friend who is experiencing the same...

  2. Funny, I guess not everyone would get the humor for the final treatment to end with a teeny horn playing a John Phillips Souza's congratulatory march.
    But I'm glad you're done. I have been going around half-baked lately. Take care.

  3. I love your sense of humor and in that kind of setting, you need all the humor you can get. Love the way you roll with what life dishes up! ♥


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
