A Resident’s Courage POETRY AND ONCOLOGY Shan Ali “So, what’s the news doc?” he said, Putting down his magazine. I started—but my tongue was a flopping fish wriggling and floundering caught in a net. He waited patiently, Smiling up at me. I felt like my heart was squeezed like a sharp lemon into a salad bowl. He had no idea. With clammy hands I drew a chair and sat down swallowed hard. “I’m sorry to say this...”I started. And spilled the bad news. Author Affiliation: Medical University of Gdańsk, Gdańsk, Poland.
