Trip Poem # 1

This poem is about forgetting poem topics.

I think of a good thing to write about, am sure I won’t forget, then I do.

Right now I am writing to remember a great poem topic I just forgot. Writing about forgetting is the best way to bring the poem back.

Ah. You might not believe it, but the writing worked.

Losing language. I’ve lost two.

Now this poem becomes about lost languages and the hurt of the loss when faced with invisible subtitles on a great Italian film.

    Thought the idea was good, but it doesn’t really operate poetically until the final image, which is an original and haunting metaphor.
