Blisters never looked so raw. They hide

under the folds of her breasts, spread outward.

First she is modest, but in her pain

she is bold. Showing us her skin and

watching the crusts picked

clean, the gentamicin applied.

A grimace.

Are you in pain?

Through her interpreter:

No pain.

Through her interpreter:

Keep going.
