crazy ol’ lady

October 16th, 2011


memory slips
fast and growing faster
making life easier
when he/she doesn’t
want to hear what is said
she reminds them
she’s only just
a crazy ol’ lady
they heard it
she does not have to debate it
golden are the years
when she can say
“if you say so”
to pomposity

her 81 year old sister calls
they commensurate on death
she asks, “are you ready to die?”
crazy lady replies,
“what’s the alternative?”
