"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

long strands of 
beautiful hair
fall out
the infection
tangled with knots
a stomach bleed
that can’t be stopped
little girl
blonde tufts of hair
on the top of her head
handed hand fulls
of complications
and drugs
try to keep her
heart beating
plugged in
to life support
in blankets of
cords and tubes
the machinery tries
the machinery fails
the safety net
has gaping holes
and she has fallen through
