word turns – March 3

3.30.2018

the words took a left turn

on me today, my brain

seeing them but not

registering.

 

what does that one mean

when do I take it,

pills, pills, the grouping

that grows

 

as one thing then

another goes twink

and we get another

scheduled.

 

lying there my mind

seizes up. which is

which; I can read

them

 

but not understand

the order that they

follow. these two

then those two

 

or was it those other

two, or this and that

combination, oh

my.

 

dear Lord, maybe this

is a foretaste of how

it might be when

when, when….

or soon, or now, or..

 

I’m not ready.

but then

we never are.

 

for all our lives

we must trust

le bonne Dieu.
