The Infirmity of Memory

The Infirmity of Memory

each recall, a telling

each telling, an edit

telling indeed,
the evolution of details

the essence of each



fondness fostered
when prolonged

eased over time


yet elusive

As much as I enjoy the work of the poets I’ve found here on WordPress,
I also appreciate how their poetry can send my mind on to seemingly
unrelated tangents.  This poem came to me after reading Yarns, by Ben Naga.
