Hello and good day on this hot and sticky day in Southern Ontario, Canada.
Today’s submission is a drawing with accompanying text from a chapbook by Julianne Davis of the U.K. . You can read the whole chapbook at http://issuu.com/outmastirie/docs/9thaprilpdf I like the juxtaposition of the airy, la-di-daa title and picture set against the image of mutating cancer cells and the strong ending statement.
My Cancer Cells Are Beautiful is the title of an expression of feelings, thoughts and dreams through poetry and art, upon my diagnosis of cancer.
I was born in Bristol, United Kingdom. I am a mother to two children.
My Cancer Cells Are Beautiful
by Julianne Davis
This was the first picture I drew
after finishing my treatment.
One day I was looking at some pictures
of cancer cells and I
was thinking how beautiful
The way they moved, mutated and
A stunning catalyst of cells,
dispersing like shooting stars,
mutating everything it touches.
I hate you.
