The Meaning of Words

He’s a
retired linguistics
professor with
Alzheimer’s
three deranged
children &
a wife who
laughs hysterically
at everything
anyone says.

 

He walks
for hours
around &
around the
junior-high
track in
baggy
sweat pants an
Eddie Bauer
jacket &
one of those
Australian
rimmed hats
with a
chin strap.

 

He seems
relieved
now that
the words have
left him.
