Reading about symptoms 
The loss of smell
Has always correlated
To the function of memory

No one can remember
What it was like before
Now we only see the smoke
While few detect the fire

In our sleepless rage
We are burning away
What was burned in
At such an early age

Namely how to tell when
The fire keeping you alive
Might burn the place down
While your senses are sleeping

Rocks dashed against the clouds
