I’m carving out an effigy of
Forgetfulness grasping mangled ledgers
of memory. Look how it shuffles screens,
kinks files: larceny of channeled retention
from unmuscled thresholds and honed lingo.
Its intrusions inhabit the vacuum.
It hobbles the hinge of suggestion, the
fulcrum of my textual clout. Like sleepwalk
pillowed and impermeable, it is
ambling the clamped mansion of my cortex.
