cogito, ergo sum

i find i now remember
the word i need to use
no more pregnant pauses
no offering up of clues

no need for you to wonder
what i am trying to say
each sentence is quite clear
in an elementary way

i think, i speak and i explain
i conjugate each clause
the words which once evaded me..
no longer give me pause

i thought it was the passing years

which caused my brain to slow

while actually a chemical (prescribed)

had caused the words to go

i write, i read, i watch the tube

i stay awake all day

"i think, therefore i am" you know

more eryll in some way!
