Away from home in a hotel complex
Finding myself on unfamiliar ground;
Unable to locate my accommodation
How had I arrived and where bound?
Where was my own [non-existent] wheelchair?
My walking-stick and capacious bag
With purse, cash cache and personal ID?
Now just a poor soul with urgency to pee.
Whose was this unfamiliar wheelchair?
Purloined from whom, when and where?
Had I left my door with a key in the lock?
Would return find my own pad laid bare?
On sudden awakening - what blessed relief!
Eyes opened at home at my desktop pc,
I’d merely ‘dropped off’ unconsciously:
Feared dementia not yet reality!
