Losing Them


I had ideas for two poems
but know I won’t remember them
when I get home without some trick,
a note or cantrip.  Once
I could recall such things
but though I chase almost
as fast as ever, lately they
have learned to flee much faster.

I've written a whole bunch of poems since Christmas. Got three notebooks of them. I wanted to ask poetrylord about the girl in the picture. Think I can steal her from him. But the thread is locked.

I can remember all the poems. I got stuck on cantrip at first, but I secrete outside normal. They don't play Swamp Thing the series on MeTV at 5am anymore but I get the same feeling.

Post the first lines of each one, and maybe I can remember them.

Ah, youth!  When I was your age (assuming it's mine minus 5 or more) I remembered everything.  Now, I get distracted so easily... but writing poetry is a string of distractions, isn't it, non-sequiturs that follow each other, connected with rhymes and typography?  I do remember what I remembered when I could still remember things, especially the embarrassing parts  Blush .  Without wanting to.
