12. More Alzheimer's than amnesiac

Discarded, the tangled metal,
in its metamorphosis
from usefulness,
loses its identity.
More Alzheimer than amnesiac,
abandoned by its memories,
beyond conversation.
There are no photographs of its prime,
little remains to enable recognition,
its time is running out
and it is beyond singing.

There's a real sadness about this poem, together with its photo... and when you reach a certain age, it leaves one with a heaviness for missed days in the past...
