I accelerated to join the flow
and careered into life’s intersection
but forgot
to read the sign

spat out the other side
exchanging a foreign currency
for food and shelter
but forgot
to visit the country

tried on expensive suits and Champagne
marble floors and caviar
but forgot
my destitution

let Love lead me across the dance floor
in a flurry of spins and dips
but forgot
I can’t tango

finally this tide of events
washed me upon the shores of disillusion
catching pigs and chewing the fat
but forgot
I’m a vegetarian

knelt before the altar
seeking enlightenment
but forgot
I’m a non-believer

so wrote a poem with all the imagery
and metaphor I could muster
but forgot
to actually say anything
