 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan


The older you get
 More thoughts you can forget
I looked in the dictionary
Someone said it is also a Lexicon
 Isn't that Little people in Ireland?
Anyway! I looked up the meaning of Alzheimer's
I was going to tell you what it said
But I forgot!
Saw this lady walk by
Asked her if she knew what Alzheimer's was
She said, "You have it!"
"How do you know?"
"You asked me my name I am your wife."
I thought she looked familar
The neighbor boy is now ten
I have known him since birth
Introduced him as "Ford"
He said, "My name is Hudson!"
Give me credit I knew it was a car
This old timer thing
Introduced him to Brother in Law Ted
Called him Ed
I knew there was an Ed in there someplace
Never forget a face
It is so nice you get to meet new people all the time
And the older you get you have baby thoughts
This strange women said, "I draw the line
at changing your diapers!"
"Are you my care giver?"
"No Ninny, we have been married 55 years."
It's coming back to me her name is---?
It's coming back to me--!
I didn't know my name was Ninny?
"Shari--the dawn is breaking!--Shari!"
Whats really nice it is a new day everyday
Worked in the garden yesterday
I was counting spiders and ants
Taking Shari to the dance
Oh no, I was watering the plants.
A yellow crab showed up on my computer screen
I call him Ninny and he looks just like me
Can't laugh at yourself
Who can you laugh at?
Reality
