Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
Metastasized

Metastasized,
transformed for terror
not a single body
like the head of a snake

The head cut off
but the roots deeper
metastasized like a tumors
spread far and wide

If a head to the hydra
maybe like the heads aplenty
on the head of Medusa
each one their own risk

The head is gone
but the cancer remaining
spread in hearts
jaundiced by fear
emboldened by fire
