The Forgetting


my number is deleted from the list

only to be recycled for someone new

after an interval of forgetting


being of only average talent and looks

the forgetting falls upon my friends soon

my true name lost to all the winds


from the outlands I monitor the situation

a collection of USB memories

ready to over heat the system with re-insertions


one day I’ll do it, I say to the others

put a spoke in their wheels for once and all

re-populate the collective imagination
