Deliver

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘I haven’t been able to think clearly in several

weeks. My mind has been clouded and I can’t figure out

the reason,’ I noted as my mom looked at her own reflection

in the screaming kettle. Finally turning off the stove, she prepared

a cup of white cherry tea and handed it to me. As I took a few cautious

sips, she sat by my side and asked me to listen carefully, ‘because once

I share this with you, I won’t ever be able to remember. Take care

of these words, and deliver those clouds to their makers.’

  3. The sharing of secrets,
    hidden
    within the mind,
    passed
    down,

    made into
    those rhythmic rhymes…

  10. I won’t ever be able to remember it – the first thing that came to my mind was alzheimer’s – which has nothing to do with it does it?
