All that remains: here in my afterlife as a 'mainstream' blogger, with what little I know.

Dear Caretaker
I imagine a woman who looks after the elderly and how they might feel for their caretaker:


Elderly or Blind, Near The Door

Snuff the candle in my hall
pocket silver from my heart --
my cluttered attic
your destiny
pillage.
Spare not a memory
before I die.
Strange framed faces
stare back as I puzzle
pieces of memory
carried out in the night
under long coats
and over-sized bags.
Don't forget the plug
on that sweet exit.
Relief.
