It turned out to be a pre-cancerous skin thingy, nothing to be concerned about. When she said, let's take a closer look, I tried to be philosophical, but Socrates got in the way.

Thanks, Vaughn, Dalloway, Devika, Frank, and John.

Thanks, Milan.

Yep, Gina, I have two in the current "Heron's Nest," six in the current "Ambrosia," four in "Notes from the Gean." These are all available online, and the poems will eventually find their way to this blog.

Thanks, Gillena. I always enjoy tikkis's follow-ups.
