Ode to the CAT Scan

I’ve been to and thru

hospital beds

and equipment since my 

bout with cancer began.

I am taken,

perhaps smitten, with the

CAT scan.

It’s smooth round portal,

It’s calm grey interior

It’s quiet, but mighty energy.

A blinking of lights,

A quiet hum.

Your body and being

relax as you glide

back and forth

until it says you are released.

Then up you go

and about your business;

Intact, but scanned.
