An Addict With Alzheimer’s

This wonderful post is from a master clinician/neurologist who is a very gifted poet and author. This post is very timely. He has captured something that all of us will see in some of our patients. Remember this post and remember his words because they are very accurate for many these day. Enjoy and reflect!

The Wooded Path

He made himself known in the
bathroom of a halfway house
where by the bed he’d lost
his borrowed dime store glasses
with bottle thick lenses through
which his crooked world was framed
and missing the mark like something
he thought less than man or woman
he tottered downcast and blinded
toward the bed to wait for Mama’s
forehead kiss and trusted tucking
safe into the feathered shell of night.IMG_2399
