The memory poem (which I have memorised – not).

The memory poem (which I have memorised – not).

I can’t remember

if I remember;

I can’t remember

if I forgot,

to do a thing,

or do it not.

I can’t remember…

and, when, or if,

I do remember,

I can’t remember

whether I forgot

to do a thing

or do it not,

on purpose;

I can’t remember if I didn’t remember,

or did remember to remember it not?

I don’t remember December

I don’t remember December

I don’t remember December,

even though it’s only January Fourth- Seventh? Fifteenth? Fifteenth.

I don’t remember your name

even though it’s the same

as mine –

Too much wine?

Not enough wine?

Though I don’t recall

drinking any wine,

at all.

Mind Picture (aka Picture of the Mind)

Mind Picture (aka Picture of the Mind)

I took a mind picture yesterday;

I didn’t have a camera,

so I snapped it with my memory

(luckily there was still enough ‘free’ space available),

and then I filed it…

somewhere.

Now, I can’t find it at all,

I’ve looked under ‘pictures’,

‘memories’ ‘things’,

but I just can’t find any picture

in any place

(Sings): Oh, where has my picture gone,

the one that I took yesterday;

I’m sure I must have it,

I filed it away,

Oh, where is my picture today?

(Stops singing).

Next time, I shall take my camera,

or I shall‘by see anything at all.

My Word!

When I
Go out
Around
The town
Without
A pen
(Or piece of paper)
To write
Things down;
My words,
That is;
My word
It’s hard
(To remember things)
When I
Go out
Around
The town
Without
A pen
(And piece of paper)
To write
Things down
When I
Go out
Around
The town;
My word,
It is.
