 Monobon by Julia Rose Lewis




If falling off a horse is seeding fear inside.  Then returning to sitting trot to softening top line to flip flopping ears is heroic.  The hen wife gifted me the homebred magpie, I mean the baby horse  is becoming tame is a metaphor of course, and source for endorphins.  I feel like sifting sugar onto a birthday cake to ride into writing.  It is only a total laparoscopic hysterectomy and salpingectomy and cystoscopy.  It is not only a cervix with focal high grade squamous intraepithelial lesions also known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasm.  Definitive is as definitive does give an ending to my cervical cancer risk.  However risk is not confined inside the body.  It is still inside and outside and a little visible blight I need to mind the magpie for the next twenty years.


If fear is a mischief flying out her ears





Julia Rose Lewis is the author of six poetry collections; the most recent of which is Postcards From Mental States, a collaboration with Paul Hawkins.
