Tom Rice, a former patient of Dr. Andrew Budson, Associate Director of Research at the BU ADC, wrote the following poem as a reflection of living with early-onset AD.

ARTIST

There it is
It strikes
Not bullet loud
Not arrow silent

More personal
Like a knife

How it hurts
As it steals my life

Now a hammer and chisel
Chips fly
This artist has control
This artist
Has no passion
No desire
To create

Chips
How they fly
