Best Poem of Seamus Whittington Crawford III

Taps

Every time I check in with her, she ends up playing taps for me.
Over and over - how many times must I hear it to bury it all?

Too much of precious me
trying to sell her yet again free access to my dementia…

She’s inscrutable, impossible, unobtainable and outta reach.

Don’t wanna talk, don’t wanna kiss, don’t ...
