word turns – March 3


the words took a left turn

on me today, my brain

seeing them but not



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



lying there my mind

seizes up. which is

which; I can read



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



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.
