No need to make it worse (a poem)

I sense this is becoming a theme…

Is it ever the right time to ask
what she remembers?

She knows she’s having trouble—
mostly little things so far

And then there was that one thing…

But no, she knows
there’s a detail or two missing
here and there

No need to make it worse

Does she really not
remember that?

It’s probably not a good idea
to remind her

She knows
there’s a detail or two missing
here and there

No need to make it worse
