Poem of the Day: "At Wit's End" by Lauren McBride, Frequent Contributor


At Wit's End       
Lauren McBride

suffer the gray -                  
not aging keratin
perhaps

perhaps gray matter -
befuddled brain cells
leaking out

leaking out -
their purpose
forgotten


Poet’s Notes: This poem takes a lighthearted look at two common complaints of the elderly: memory loss and gray hair. Playing on gray hair and gray matter, I suggest the two are related.
