I met my lungs today
A first time meeting,
blind date type of thing
the right looked right
as a lung should be, apparently
the left swam in a miasma, a type of soup
it evaded capture by xray
an evasive organ see?
You reckon its cancer?
I asked the cool young stud
Who was doctoring me
I don’t know he said
Sent me for a blood test
A breath test – a complicated business
Of huffing and puffing in,out,in,out
I bought a Costa coffee at vast expense
Against my principals too
Drove home in wonderful sunshine
Tonight I will repot my tomato plant
Give it room to breath….
