They found him on the floor at home
having “some kinna episode"
they called the ambulance
it's epilepsy
they said
violent spastication
what does it mean?
a message of some kind
an angry spirit
struggling to escape?
“It's probably genetic”
they said
or drug-abuse
you're not a prophet or seer
take Lamotrigine
8 hours sleep
no alcohol drugs cigarettes caffeine
the absences are temporary
a few minutes a day
the memories?
Who needs them anyway?
Look forward not back
look after yourself
