Sick

We were loading bags into the car,

in the supermarket multi-storey,

when Aunt fell. She simply shrieked

with pain, and toppled over.

At the hospital, the attending

physician orders blood tests.

It is shocking to see Aunt

so gravely ill. The test results

are back within two hours.

Aunt has an unusually high

white cell count. It may be a sign

of leukaemia. Cancer.
