I Don't Know

I Don’t Know
The woman wraps her arms
Around my neck.
I don’t know her.

I sit and ponder the harms
That could happen upon the floor.
I don’t remember her.

She whispers something to me
As she begins to sob.
Her arms squeeze my neck.

I don’t know her!
Dementia fuels me
And I push her away.
