Treasure Island

Alejandra Berber

Forget to Remember


If one day you plan on forgetting me:

Focus on not remembering,
when your hands clenched mine
as we marched the street-less sidewalks.

Or how your lips sealed mine,
when words could not
describe the synch of our thoughts.

Forget the filler words in those page-less books we read,
only concealing honest lies of foreign love affairs.
Happy endings that only shaped my dreams to a distorted reality.

But most importantly,
forget the time you wasted pursuing a failed goal.
Think not of reminiscing as you read these words.
Remember, I forgot already.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
