WHAT CAN NEVER FADE


your father's memory
is not what
it was.

you drove him to
the alzheimer's
specialist.

"your father has
the wrong day,"
the doctor says.

"maybe you have
the wrong day,"
you say.

you must
really
love your father.

how to comment on this. sublime is what my battered college thesaurus reads but it's not that. it's the perfect sadness of the honesty and so much spilled.
