Some Facility

There’s been a turndown in my learning capacity—
It’s been more than five years since I could still
Learn a new system of maneuvers with some facility,
But that seems gone. I feel so simple-minded.

All that I attempt is difficult,
Whether it’s a new thing I want to learn and can’t
Or some Swiss cheese topic I sweat to refresh,
But cannot guess my way through or long retain.
I veer away from each equally now

Because I don’t like to be tested
And I don’t like to admit it. You know,
Whether TV shows are too complicated or too fast or I’m
Just growing deaf, I’m always losing track of the story.

I used to have
A sharp imagination
And a Velcro memory,
But sometimes now it’s just mush.
