Breast cancer- a brave admission in art form


Breast cancer- a brave admission in art form (poem- a tercet)

——

I saw this picture in the pexel collection,
I admire her bravery in admission
against femininely- accepted definition.

The pose seems to be for art-form
many would think it was not so warm
to be received as a new norm.

Mastectomees-by-choice will not frown
at the new level, she has taken taboo to,
for they will approve, too, privately with their open gowns.

I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy. I started with the breasts, as my risk of breast cancer is higher than my risk of ovarian cancer, and the surgery is more complex.- Angelina Jolie
