Mary Jo

She frustrated you because she used to overheat her tea and drink it from the saucer instead of the cup.

She cannot hear a word you say- not that it would matter if she could- your world and hers have been disconnected by her delusions for over thirty years.

Today, you told me she is so thin she looks like a prisoner in Dachau- not liberated from but still locked inside.

It seems that the prison of her mind has finally caught up with her body.

We wait and watch as she disappears from us a little more each day- finally liberated from a world of her own horrific creation.
