Watching Her~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Watching Her

Image from pinterest.com

watching her watching herself
as if seeing a stranger performing
her habits with hands dispossessed
senses dulled by unwittingly
donned ontological gloves
thinking thoughts of confusion
with pale milky eyes unaffectedly fixed
upon faces and forms once familiar

watching her watching herself
with a dour detachment
from time and from place
unaware of her beautiful currency
blank is the gaze
where the light used to be
what dim world does she see
where each task turns to puzzle

watching her watching herself
broken remnants of memory
sputter and spark in the mist
unnamable colors
flash senseless of sequence
erratic of interval
now and then dim recognition
arranges a smile of subtle surprise

watching her watching herself
he hopes his old mind
is enough for the two of them
