Between the Chairs

Following his stem-cell transplant,
Keyboardist Andreas Staier,
Replied to an interviewer,

It doesn’t look bad, but things don’t
Look really good either. Right now,
I’m sitting between the chairs. So,

Seems about right. Sound familiar?
Of course, it would be nice to have
Only the cancer to think of,

Or to not have to think of it,
But there’s life in the long twilight
That won’t hint if it’s dawn or night.

You wake and there’s music to make,
Or there’s something to read or write.
