The diagnosis

“People react to the news of cancer in different ways” the doctor informed.

Clarisa was already working on plan A through Z.


I was memorizing her face.

Lets face it, the doctor and I knew I was dead within the month. Doc is pragmatic, she was unhappy delivering the news, but it was obvious I was screwed regardless.

Yeah, no symptoms other than blacking out. A few visits later and I have imminent death this month.

Clarisa, my dear Clarisa.

Let me etch in her face as if it’s the first time I see it, and not the last.
