Not Lupus

By Sonja Nitschke

It's just a line. Horizontal, not vertical. It seems to stretch, invisible, beyond the edges of the monitor.

It used to spike into jagged, baseless triangles. Not anymore.

There's a sound. A sustained beep that forgot to end. I put my fingers in my ears.

I don't hear the doctors state her time of death.
