The bones are brittle as are the thoughts they crumble events of yesterdays that never happened things that happened not remembered today becomes another time faces and events mingle become a crazy
quilt



He sits and stares unaware of a spreading map in his crotch that moves down his legs and becomes a puddle at his feet



His hands dangle at his sides veiny gnarled twitching are they waiting for some message from that dead brain his pulse is almost an insult



They say he feels no pain

The bones are brittle

as are the thoughts

they crumble

events of yesterdays that never happened

things that happened not remembered

today becomes another time

faces and events mingle

become a crazy quilt

?

He sits and stares

unaware of a spreading map

in his crotch that moves down

his legs and becomes a puddle

at his feet

?

His hands dangle at his sides

veiny gnarled

twitching

are they waiting for some message

from that dead brain

his pulse is almost an insult

?

They say he feels no pain
