When The Tell Me It's Alzheimer's by Robin Golke
The drill bit is breaking & i have to make words of it
Your wedding band is cut from your delicate finger; they give you pills that make you shuffle & i have to make words of it
i'm searching with a seething rage that's male, hopeless, bare to the waist.
i'm as lost as you were when you kissed my dead father in his casket.
i've smashed every photo, burned everything i've ever written, spat at my graceful prose.
My confused tears fall on memories of you bathing me in the sink.
Gratefully, i would remove my own entrails & read their pearly scroll if only for an answer: why you mother?
You are vacuous, you leave me with clenched muscles. My two brothers fall away.
