Is that deep ache

A renegade cell
That has awakened, 
Once burrowed deep-
On the run from
Carboplatin, Taxotere
Tamoxifen, arimidase
Nerlnyx, biopsy needles,
Scalpels and 35 rounds
Of targeted radiation?
Or is it just the usual
Pains, the harbinger
Of storms, the expected
Price for the privilege 
Of living, the wearing 
Of bone that has had
8 more years to hold 
you up, after all?
