Breadcrumb #251


Job’s job
Blessed was
The only word
This mousy
Devout apostle
Could come up
With to describe
How living felt
Until one day
Her younger brother takes his own
And older sis crosses off the same
As our cat gets lymphoma, a ratling
Newborn appears not to be thriving
Plus unseen untold cousins manifest
Hematologic symptoms
Which did follow
Some photos I took
Before snapping
A hip bone that
 Triggers disabling
Spinal stenosis. 
Although born
Jewish, moi --
Who now bleeds
Atheism – can’t
Seem to figure
Out ways to make
Goddamn shape
Poems look like
My Star of David.
