Things go pear-shaped
Immersing oneself in the least favored tasks
Cards against unnecessary screening procedures
Cancer cell photos on card backs by Dr. Chris Bakal, Institute for Cancer Research, London
Thanks to Dr. Alan Nazerian, who’s a radiologist in Chicago, for his help with understanding the cancer screening process and the incredibly detailed information he provided. The usual disclaimer applies, which is that I alone am responsible for errors and oversimplifications.
Thanks to my colleague, designer Tim Ferguson Sauder — I went to show him what I made and to ask how best to photograph it, and he volunteered to take the photos posted here.

I: Routine stop
The way his hand wrenches
The neck of a stranger
How his feet kick the legs out from
Leaving the weight of his body
In the mercy of overkill
There was a woman in an airport
Her son divided by oceans, by war, by triggers, by blood
There were the hands of another, who slid inside her palm
an envelope and whispered,
“Go and bring him”
They carried him over
Tucked him under
Hid him inside
Sheltered him closely
But the men in green
With their eyes made of convex lenses
And polycarbonate searing
Spotted him like a laser
Searching for a target
placed him in a cage made of polished earth
And sent him as far from his heart as they could.
