#11 Assisted Living

Ring a bell and someone comes

Push a button to invite a hello

How are you?  they ask


Doorways large accommodate

All those collected years

Rolling into the shower


Puzzles abound on card tables

Holidays are happily posted

Birthdays are announced


Ladies flirt with cookies

While men account the wars

Grandchildren visit Saturdays


A fortunate soul will not wake

Sliding away without assistance

Now watching the others prepare
