On Dementia – Poetry by James Aitchison

Particle Memory – Lita Albuquerquee

They say dementia is progressive
You’ve got toys coming out
They say it begins as a shadow
of your mouth. They look like
They say it is the opposite side of the same thing
tinplate. Did anyone ever tell you
They say it is beauty seen through broken glass
that you look just like my
Will it be over soon?
