I'm Cleaning Up My Act

<                                        amidst thy shell's core

                                          healing of ones soul begins

                                         with .........  wholesome cleansing

Alzheimer's Parody

her mask unchanging
rippling reality stints
despair’s fiery pits

sanity tilted
crust layered with razor blades
echo touched voices

opposites control
revolving kaleidoscope
serene destruction

sketchy shadow paths
Alzheimer’s parody stains
fog filled memories

cataracts upon lens slowly steal clear vision... surgery restores
I am to have cataract surgery next week..I don't know how long it will be before I will be able to see at full vision again but it took my husband a few weeks for his to come back..It will be distance vision only..I will still have to have glasses for reading and computer work..I probably will not have the second eye done right away..I read with the eye that I am not having done..I will have to see how it goes before I get it done..My husband had to have laser surgery on the second eye he had done..I hope that doesn't happen to me..

the verdict is in
cigarettes do cause cancer
it’s been known for years

the verdict is in
those who smoke can become hooked
it’s been known for years

right on the package –
“Cigarettes may cause cancer” –
or to that effect

outrageous taxes!
smoking is too expensive
it’s outrageous!

but they go right on,
these hooked victims of smoking,
ignoring the facts

a desperate need –
smoking, like the need for gasoline –
and prices will soar!

come on, let’s face it!
the big money is riding on
our human weakness

and the end result?
very rich or very poor,
the new age classes
