the healing muse

Volume 13, 2013

Dememtia

Theresa Wyatt

Staring into fossil displays
I sense your fear of being
encased, everyday

a new thought stream
of how it will happen
flows into my mind

chills it just so,
becomes light frost

Why only yesterday
you called past midnight
thinking it day,

ravaging the freezer
at 4 am, shouting
Dinner’s ready

and me, so happy
you still call
my name
