Remind Me to Forget
My addled head has many things
it would like to store
but one look inside, one glance through the door
and there is no room.
I have kept and held and coddled
the hurt, the worst of everything
and there is no space, no room to bring
inside the very things I need.
It takes a friend to remind me
that the reason I forget so much
is all of the remembering that I should give up.
The best way to remember is to have someone
remind you to forget.
