For Ladies Only: Dedicate to the Color Pink
.

… slowly one (of them) grew larger
sickness embedded
like journalists in war
hard as an orange, clean as a bald head
while the other twin remained untouched
unscathed by the hostile legions of contamination
that grew next to the heart we once called home.
The griefs of my own lie heavy in my breasts!
