I walk about confused

I walk about confused
and I look at the lawsuit
all over the floor of the writing room
and I think
Heck
when will I get to the sea
and travel on a boat of words
to the destination
that is all about justice?


I walk about confused
today is the day dad gets a new cornea
and then tomorrow we go to get the eye
checked out by Dr. Climenhaga
then Rebecca comes home
I've an Alice Modin Award
application to do for Ruth Adria
and the wet clothes are still in
the washing machine


I walk about confused
and then I decide to drink my coffee
and read a poem
it's best to not get your knickers in a twist
but work for decades
as Ruth Adria has done
because government is a big piece of machinery
that does not work for us
which begs the question who does government work for?


I walk about confused
and then I simply look at the light
the dancing light is all over the geraniums
and peels back the leaves from the African violets
that pant their tongues
in the muddy room and I think to myself
it's all life    the bad and the good
we're here for this journey  the boat of language
is already on its way   the destination comes into view

Unprovoked banning of visitor at Caritas Hospitals

Home > Abuse & Neglect Studies > Unprovoked banning of visitor at Caritas Hospitals
We have sent the attached along so that you may understand how determined the system is to frighten, discourage and get rid of me.
I was sitting quietly with a dying man, Konstanty (Ken) Stankiewicz on the evening of the 24th of October (He died on the 26th). His 93 year old wife went home to sleep, she was exhausted. I was sitting in a chair beside the dying man, in a dimly lit room. Staff were kind to me and even gave me a heated blanket – though I did not have conversation with them or discuss the care øf the dying man.
At 2:00 AM I became aware of two large uniformed persons standing in the darkened doorway, who asked me to step into the hallway.
The male constable demanded my license. He then read me my rights, cautioned me, told me to call a lawyer if I wished and said anything I said could be used against me. I was frightened (AND VERY TIRED) and said I did not wish to cause a problem but that I had been there that day/afternoon and often before, The male constable, who was the only one who addressed me, said that I should stop saying that because he would have to give me additional tickets for that. He filled out the attached.
He informed me that there was a restraining Order against me signed by a judge in the Misericordia Security office. I have never been served any documents, Restraining Order in this regard or was aware of what he was claiming.
I had been removed from the Misericordia Hospital on February 19, 2004 – note “Case Study” in www.elderadvocates.ca .
They walked me past the nursing station, out of the nursing home, to my car. Once outside, the male constable thanked me a number of times that I had been cooperative.
