An Unexpected Turn of Events Midway through Chemotherapy

I’d like some sex please.
I’m not too picky—
(after all, have you seen me?
so skinny you could
shiv me with me?)
Philosexical, soft and
Gentle, a real
Straight fucking, rhymed
Or metrical—whatever
You’ve got, I’ll take it.
Just so long as we’re naked.
