Quote of the day: CANCER

January 16, 2016


“The Fourth Sign of the Zodiac” (excerpt)

Why should I have been surprised?
Hunters walk the forest
without a sound.
The hunter, strapped to his rifle,
the fox on his feet of silk,
the serpent on his empire of muscles —
all move in a stillness,
hungry, careful, intent.
Just as the cancer
entered the forest of my body,
without a sound.

–Mary Oliver
