Alzheimer’s

it was hard to determine the precise moment
when her gaze became tomorrowless

although i remember the thick smell of sheets
and the clinical light

i can still remember that she stole a kiss
and that all she knew was left in her hands
how they held on to the cold bars of the bed

Alzheimer’s was originally published on Meandering home
