In Memory of Betty...

Dill & Black Swallowtail caterpillar
i lived for two weeks on coffee
and Guinness
you couldn't eat, so i couldn't eat
i slept in 15 minute intervals, if at all
the tiniest sound, i was there
you didn't want the morphine
you didn't want the diaper
i held your hand, i told you it was o.k.
i hollered, i laughed, i hated those tumors
you shrunk, they grew
you wouldn't go until i was out of the room
you headstrong Aries Womon, i love you
