On Trying to Get Blood From a Stone
bleed for me i beg
but you hold back, touch a nerve
all is still in vein
I failed my pre-chemo blood test today… crap veins. I am the proverbial stone. Luckily my GP only tried a couple of times before he admitted defeat. I still bled a little … should have decorated my plasters like those above by artist Florie Salnot. They are part of an art project of hers “I Don’t Like Jabs” – neither do I, and neither do my veins obviously. Oh to have big juicy fat veins… the holy grail for all cancer patients and nurses alike!
