PET Scan
Our cold metallic radiant tools,
Pride of post-industrial wit,
Bear the names of furry living beings
Our closest companions,
Our cats and our pets.

Theirs is a stark modernist beauty,
arcs and circles,
tones of electronica,
postures of obeisance
required of supplicants.

Silent and still
I lie and imbibe
swooping quark symphony,
holding my breathing
to its rhythm.

My doctor, ecstatic,
summons me afterward
to see my tumor,
a glowing orange sphere
on a maroon field.
