Poem a Day/ April 9th, 2011 – Robert Vaughan

DEMENTIA/ Robert Vaughan

The best part of the day
is watching him sleep.
Today he wakes up chuckling.
What is so funny? I ask. He points:
the story. In the paper. Inside story.

I pick up a newspaper from the floor.

I read the headline on page two aloud:
Woman On Safari Attempts to Stop Fight
Between Two 5000 Pound Elephants.
No that’s not it he mumbles.
Falls asleep.
