A Grand Entrance
difficult to remember,
only a suggestion of a memory,
life before illness,
a faded spot on the wall
slightly evident from a distance,
the shrunken world which followed
this house; half cocoon now.
is there courage enough to step outside into the sun?
among those who have been going about their lives,
while i have waited
sitting here with my argumentative companions; hopefulness and hopelessness.
shall i put them both out of their misery and go out for a walk?
