Truth

Truth ~ Poems by Susannah Anderson — Adult 

Truth
is fallen in the street. Her walker 
tipped in the gutter, 
ankle snapped. Can't get up, 
old bones like straws 

softly now 
slide her in tie her down 
gently Coddle her. 
Watch for shock. 

Ask her the date 
Take note; confused 
and wandering 
Humour her. 

Truth wandered alone 
into the street 
in walker and nightgown 
looking for yesterday 

*After Isaiah 59:14
