ON THE ROCKS
Whiskey on the rocks, advised by my doc
combats dementia, so bring on the blocks
no need for a glass; I'll have me the bottle
I am Me, Set me Free
dementia, cancer, creation, environment, health,
I am given to you by Creator Himself
My Limbs long to grow straight and tall
Bathed in sunlight from above, paying homage
Fulfilling my God given task
THE VANISHING ORGAN
dementia, funny, lost, lost,
a sad ol' geezer
was lamenting his shrinkage of late:
my worthless ding-a-ling
is a bell without ring
my manhood in diminishing state
From whence I salute
Lost To Dementia
dementia, august, crazy, emotions, feelings,
Night of the dark soul
the gap between self
Your mind’s a fragile
that is under siege
and cannot be saved.
I SIT SOBBING
dementia, memory, mental illness, mother
I’m staring at the reflection in the mirror -
who is the lady with the grey hair?
Today a strange man came to visit me
I do not...

No expression on her face

dementia, death, friendship, heartbreak, missing,
This passing year, another one of love and joy
with family...some sadness too within our hearts.
Good health, accomplishments, rewards we did enjoy.
But oh, our golden...
Spending a few moments pondering
The syllogism of existentialism, and
All of the pages of histories
Finds, movements, theories and themes....
The intricities; complexities
Compounds; variables and factors
LIVING WITH A STRANGER - EMOTIVE WRITE
dementia, caregiving, dedication, lost love,
You stare at me with vacant eyes
It’s like living with a stranger
Tears and tantrums we both despise
Where is the man I once loved?
Locked inside your...
dementia, confusion, emotions, feelings, imagery,
Waiting in the shadows
your life as sanity
begins to slip away.
Once your memory fails
life loses all meaning
thoughts turn to suicide
and death becomes your friend.
Sperm Whale Dementia

As fearless I do leap.

Last Sound Heard
dementia, hope, sound, spiritual, visionary,
It was not the sound of babies crying
Old folks dourly discussing
Strident voices of cussing
It was not the sound of children weeping
By the Candle's Light - 1, 9, 16
dementia, age, death, husband, wife,
Sewing machine, long idle, gathered dust
next to a uniform lined with medals
She watched him shine them; he'd make such a fuss
Thankful he had returned from...
She sits by herself in the dayroom
absent-mindedly taking her med,
her head is a blank, she knows nothing,
braceleted, brought to her bed.
Sedation has settled her nightmares
State of Mind

I am uninhibited and long in years
but still here to praise the day
and my present mien amid the strife
that I endured I can...
