Thinking Back

~Thinking Back~

 

I forget the titles

of most of the poems I have written.

 

It doesn't matter.

I don't remember the poems, either.

 

I can't remember a single thunderstorm

or rainbow I experienced, even though they were very cool,

and impressive at the time.

 

I do remember a few poker hands and horse races I won.

The fights I came out on top of and those I lost.

 

One time, out of couriosity,  I tried to remember the name

of every woman I had sex with, 

and hoped they were doing well,

although odds are if they had sex with me, 

they had problems, and most

are no longer with us.

Very poignant.  Your poems always set my mind to reeling.
