Mind flakes


( for my Grandmother  1904 -1986 )


Tea pots & what not’s

forget the words

so absurd the tricks

time plays with memory.


Last night’s spotlight

fades to morning sky

years gone by stretch

to chewing gum thin


snap as memory

won’t let me in.


Tight band around my heart

an iron glove squeezes as

clock tick tocks time

I erode like cliff top


Here she is, the one and only

kiss me quick  this one no name

sparkles in her eyes pretty girl

my last goodbye to my world


now time and memory have lost

the knot that ties me.
