New Poet's Wednesday - A Caregiver's Daydream by Ms. Dale L. Baker, Poet


To escape this moment, this here, this now

I launch dreams forward or exhausted, drift back,

So hard to dwell here, where we are.

Today presses like a sharp-edged cookie cutter,

Outlining two sets of limbs rolled flat and stuck

in temporal goo

Your life dissolves by dollops,

I mourn each plop, each loss.

This here and now, a time we did not request

I wait for it to pass, this moment I'll forget.

Like memories strained through cheesecloth

I'll remember pieces.
