Temporary yet lasting (troiku)

(troiku)
Life’s a masquerade
springtime’s new chapter
temporary ruse

life’s a masquerade
dressed in floral camouflage
pink pedal pushers

springtime’s new chapter
arousing and illicit
scent of fresh ink

temporary ruse
despite its transience
forever memoirs

Written for The Daily Post – Temporary

What if I don’t remember?

B questioning me nov 13

la sénescence ne pardonne pas
La mémoire
est une faculté
qui oublie.

Senility is unforgiving.
Memory
is a faculty
that forgets.

*********

What if I don’t remember?

Every time

I don’t remember

a name, a street even a number

I do get queasy

inside my tummy.

what are my fears?

have my fair share.

driving about … anywhere

what if I lose my way out there?

I do get frightened

I’ll not come back

get lost in thought

take two wrong turns

and then I fear

I’ll lose my way…

but what about

my thoughts, my words

your face, your voice,

and all my memories?

that blasted

evil enemy

may visit me

some day …

  and stay!

That shameful senility

may rob me of my dignity.
