Margaret is Dying

Margaret is dying.
Margaret, the schizophrenic woman
whose wheelchair I was always pushing
is dying. My father feeds her pumpkin pie
instead of oatmeal on Christmas morning
even though she has diabetes
that’s how I know she’s done in.
He told me she had her first
psychotic break when she was sixteen
and went camping with her family-
That’s when people started to see
that she had really lost it.
Our Margaret has been done in further,
now she’s losing everything.
