While Waiting In The CT Scan Room of The Hospital

I fan through a magazine 

noticing a model's

bold red lips kissing the 

happy

stripes of a lollypop  



via


when I realize under the

 hot white lights 

of the

CT scan room

that the blaze of contrasts

in the photo

collide

with my ability 

to focus
  
which make me slightly dizzy

*****

 however

the white and aqua

on the next page


via


are mirrored

 by beach vignettes



via



 
while serene scenes 

of  

home and garden

via



help

 

the colors of this hour

to join 

at a horizon 



via


and then as 

the doctor comes in with 

the results of the 

second mammography 

which warranted concern

it's helpful to observe

how

candescense 

unites with 

 the velvet darkness

of an image 
  
to make

comforting impression.

(The results were negative - this is a poem to describe the challenge of the moment to see light in the potential darkness)
