Does she know your name?

'Does she know your name?'
people ask.
'does she know who you are?'
as if she is facial recognition software.

You don't understand.

When I stroke
Alzheimer's moaning,
when I croon and
feel her mottled paper skin:

her breathing eases; and
I hear her pausing.
I hear her pausing.
