Prompt : The cup in my hand rattles like a drum.~by Sudeshna Mukherjee


 

 

Prompt : The cup in my hand rattles like a drum.

The cup in my hand rattles like a drum
The blood surges throbbing numb
Parkinson’s is on the prowl again
Stalking and gaining momentum

Once long ago that cup held hand
Fed wholesome quite a few grand
Seasons changed and years grew
Shoulders drooped in twilight’s brew

The glorious blaze seemed a thing of past
Foggy nights creep in fast
Yes the cup in my hand rattles like a drum
For closure soon with my tilted fulcrum .
