She speaks of the alienation of senses.

vision fades

hearing lies

touch hurts

taste dulls

smell empties

What remains is the acute sense of memory

and occasionally a sense of humour

at the irony

of it all.

    This reminds me of my Nanna, her sense of humour and memory were there until the end. Thank you for sharing – I love how poetry can mean different things to different people 🙂
