What Happens in the Dark

Each round of chemo
is followed by a smothering;
mind quieted, reduced to
enduring, waiting. Uncaring.

Eventually, it wakes again
and it is almost too much.
Thought after thought after
thought, connections exploding.

As the next round approaches,
the intensity impossibly increases.
Chain lightning, racing across
vast fields, as dusk settles.
