1.

Puke green, Compazine.
Little white ladies, Nolvadex
Speckled Cytoxan
Take these and these
and maybe these
if you need them.
Your Hair might fall out.
You may gain twenty pounds.
We cannot say.
We cannot say if they'll work.
You'll be okay
unless you start dying.
Puke green Compazine.
Little white ladies, Nolvadex
Speckled Cytoxan.

2.

How are you?
"I'm all right," I say.
We both agree
I will not say
how I really am today.

3.

Chemotherapy will fix you up,
if it doesn't kill you,
but no matter what your lot,
you can be sure they'll bill you.
