using names, words with capital letters
reveal your knowledge, your references
not posting always in extenso thoughts
but names that put yourself in time & space

I move like an Alzheimer's patient
in the middle of people who don't recognize
me anymore! I am the reluctant mirror
of their oblivion

I never minded answering the same question,
Over and over again. The person it hurt the most was his wife.
When he awoke and said. "Who the hell are you, Your undressed. What do you think you are doing in my bed?
Get out you slut!".
Always brave to write about a horrible affliction
Regards Alan.
