I thought it high time I did something more on my rather empty and neglected wordpress page, and although I missed National Poetry Day (was that only in Britain? Probably), I did write a small piece today on a theme that has been on my mind for some time now; forgetfulness. At least, when I remember to think about it, it’s on my mind (insert laughter here).

It is a first draft, written down as it came into my mind during my waking moments this morning. I eagerly await your bad ratings and vehement reviews.
