Short Term Memory LossEars ofon the kitchen counter,empty potburning on the stove;you, seatedat the dinner table,enjoying ice cream.Alzheimer's(Holding On)I dreamed about you last night,as you were yesterday,standing in the bathroom,afraid to get in the shower.I helped you undress,then, together, we stepped in,hand holding hand,faces lifted up to the water,toes digging into the tiled floor,to keep you from disappearingdown the frightening, silvery drain.
