Doctors are pesky creatures in the wrong light, I'm told.
Why let something like cancer mess with your sexiness?


Drape Me
© Glenn Nuotio

Drape me with any old thing
just in case a little modesty decides to show up after all
just in case it looks like I’m enjoying this
holding myself up on this old chair
after all you’re the one who called me in here

and my skin might start wanting
something more than just a quick inspection
and I’m the one instead
playing dead besides a list of questions
what if I pulled this sheet
down from your head
and told you to take your time,
just listen to my breath?

drape me with any old thing
just in case in a week you have to come back
without even my asking
like another set of tests they only hand you with a hush
you may not get through this round
but I can’t pass it up
‘cause each shot’s worth the rush

and you pressed on
pushing past that victory mark on your face
and the promise you were clear
and we hate you disappeared
like that mark each time you blushed
and you left us
never so happy pressed for nothing but a little more time

because I’ve grown so tired of charts
being all I’m told to read
besides, by now there’s nothing more
about me I want you to see

so cover it up for now at the very least
admit it’s on your mind for too long
don’t be the kind who prays for your own diseases
so cover them up for now , at the very least
let me rest my head across your knees
and find any old thing please to drape me.
