October 4

Pale freckled skin, keeps organs in

Protects me from the sun

All this flecking, requires checking

To the doctors I run

*

In cotton gown, I wait around

For examination

New magazines, computer screens

Office decoration

*

Skin is assessed, concerns addressed

At my age my spots change

Scanning processed, I can get dressed

We talk short range, long range

*

Have the “all clear”, return next year

Keep wearing the sunscreen

New spots appear, please have no fear

We’ll do the same routine
