Day 19: A poem with a hole in it...

Swiss Cheese
by Laurie Kolp

 Swiss  cheese   had   become   his  mind
     as past   memories      melted  away;
scrambled  sentences   blew   from his   mouth,
  vocabulary   he  once  knew    disappeared.

Confusion   altered  his     daily   ritual
  until  the    black   hole     of   nothingness
swallowed  him   whole,  left   him    alone
  floating    in a sea   of vulnerability.
