Antiquity

By Frederick Foote

Antiquity

Old bones snap, crackle, and pop
cataracts dull lenses to a hazy gray
familiar procedures breed confusion
essential words are just beyond recall
organizing pills is a demanding routine
bowel movements are the apex of the day
each sundown is a countdown to
another round of snap, crackle, and pop
