A Definition

He cannot mow like he used to do.
He cannot climb or clean the roof.
He cannot calculate or pay the bills.
He cannot remember to take his pills.
He cannot repair or drive a car.
He cannot find home if he goes too far.
He cannot find plates or cups or food.
He cannot articulate his wants or mood.

Except to say, “I’m worthless.”
Oh, that – that he can do, and
As he defines it, yes, it’s true.
What of your definition?
For him? For you?

And So

Planted and tended,
It grew until abandoned –
Dormant and waiting.
