Poems By Leisa Pierce
Is It My Memory?

(Or All The Lists That Came)



I try hard to remember
dates, places and promises
it's all a blur
like ancient history
being taught
through a tube-fed
hole, a dark space
that was filled
then crashed
like a heart
on concrete
in July

erased
like it never happened

these words
jog a memory
a misplaced
memory
that was miscalculated
misfired
misread
(the joke
was on me)
only I didn't know
until
until
well, until after
things were strewn about
and emotions
torn
like the riptide;
pages
of a worn book
you just can't put down
