Dorothea tanning poems
peoms title(Lucky)
Ever imagining the dire,the suden

the menace with no thought of the

gradual,the linegering itch of whatever

That was my sister.

A stomach ache had to be diagnosed.

"oh,come on,it's no big deal."

"How do you know?You aren't me."

AT the doctor's office she waited.

He reached for his stethoscope,

held it to her back it and put it away

in his pocket.Then lening across

his desk,he asked importantly,

"How long have you been eating your hair?"

She could't answer.

After surgery thay came in to the recovery

room where she had just wakened.

"you are a lucky lady.we found nothing."

She had an incision and several visitors.

Besides,she was so lucky

and not a little disgusted.

"me,eating my hair."
