When it comes to the poem, I think that it can be read in the context od Leonard’s condition. In the movie it is reapeted many times that this state is like endless sleep. What comes to my mind first is the scene when Lucy wanted to look out the window. She could not even if she was trying because her brain did not cooperate with her. At the same time, Lucy known what the year was knew what year it was. Leonard said to Paula that her father heard her. I think that shows the sense of the poem. Those patiens are stuck in their bodies, in the state of non-existence. That looks like prison.
