Loved to Madness

My prose poem “Loved to Madness” was just published in the beautiful online journal Roanoke Review.  http://www.roanokereview.org/poetry2020/gene-twaronite

The poem is based on short story I wrote years ago that was also published in a literary journal and eventually published in my book Approaching Wilderness. Six Stories of Dementia. I loved the many images in this story and wanted to compress them into the fewest words. Hence this poem.
