Sixteen weekdays of radiation;
Checked off grid on sticky note
Attached to bathroom mirror.
Lisa and Margaret enthusiastically,
Competently, and graciously leapt
To task of scheduling companionship
For walks down long, underground
Hallway to Radiation Oncology lobby;
For chats during wait to be called in; and
For warm smiles as I re-emerge to world.
Support staff, clearly, by prowess;
Loving friends by heart and action.
