“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living." - Dr. Seuss


Overdose in the bathroom

unsatisfied with the way you look

sixteen years of laughing

you finally did what it took

god was absent

in the last minute

of his proof

now succumb to

narcotics of denial

drowned in his own

fountain of youth

he could of saved him

if her were in that room

swallowed in the bathroom

of his concrete tomb

mother will wash her hand

from the dirty

corpse of her son

father will wield the shovel

to bury his son...

in the land

The author's comments:
The title is a reference to my Aunt Raphaella (Dementia patient) and her yellow dog. More of an autobiography than a work of fiction,
