The Shoulders of Country Roads:
My Journey from Head and Neck Cancer
This is not a sad story, nor does it attempt to hide the horrific details of head and neck cancer. The poet takes the reader through the course of the disease beginning with the discovery of her cancer. The crossover of word-as-art and the gritty realm of medical treatment comprise the world within "The Shoulders of Country Roads." A single haiku carries her story to its positive finish:
science defies hurricane
Hear Susan read her poem, "Elegy"
