Diagnosis

Lenora M. Lapidus

loneliness 

In 2005, at the age of 42, Lenora Lapidus was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer that had spread to her bones. She wrote the poems included in Diagnosis during the three months following the discovery of her disease. Writing these poems was cathartic, helping her process the fear and pain with which she was overcome.

In her poems Lapidus weaves the ordinary and extraordinary, everyday domestic and oncological details, and never looks away from the toughest emotions—for, as she writes about fear, "Like a bear in the woods / Or a snake in the grass / If we run away they will run toward us." These generous poems inspired me very much. — Jennifer O'Grady, author of White.
