Ode to a black spot on my toe

Ode to a black spot on my toe
(VAE, PUTO DEUS FIO!)





Today I noticed a black spot
On my toe.
It was like no other before,
And brought me to a new low.



Jaded in old wisdom
And comfortable being
Mortality was of little worry
Until the end of the weaving.

Do I value life more
Or dread death more today?
How can one assess this?
There is so much to weight.

Dark whispers of knowledge..
“Looks like melanoma”.
Calm flies to distinct lands
When faced with carcinoma.

Where is serenity?
When faced with stark reality?
False as a prostitutes passion
Or last years fall fashion.

I await diagnosis
With more than apprehension
For this little necrosis.
Perhaps an invention?

This one feels "familiar"... perhaps from your archives?
