“Nothing matters more than when a person discovers their voice ….” Lisa Haynes

Lost In Aphasia 

What pricks your ears,
does it make any sense
as you graze the spice rack
along the path of discovery,
not caring for much at all,
how do you muddle through,
exponential acceleration or
just curating your inheritance,
fading out, remaining unaware,
silent in anaemic, vanilla habits, 
lost in aphasia?

  1. I had a very dear friend who suffered from aphasia after she began immunotherapy for brain cancer (from metastasized breast cancer). it was painful to hear this previously bright articulate woman struggle to answer a basic ‘how are you ‘type of question. Your poem reminds me more of someone who has not yet found her voice rather than someone with aphasia who can’t quite grasp the correct word she wants to express her voice.

  2. Like, OMG, you don’t sound like a good con-SU-mer! Are you sure you’re, um, NOR-mal? Like, maybe some medi-CA-toon? I’m so SURE!… 😆

  4. Having aphasia must be so frustrating. Communicating with other people is such a basic human need.
