Rant #7: I Hate Poetry!

I forgot to look at my watch today.
What time is it?
I forgot to look at my calendar today.
What day is it?
I forgot to call my dad today.
Do they have cell reception in heaven?

I forgot to look in the mirror today.
Who am I?
I forgot to check my pockets today.
Is there anything in there?
I forgot to take out the garbage today.
Is it still trash?

I forgot to get up today.
Is it still today?
I forgot to go to sleep last night.
Is it tomorrow yet?
I forgot what I was saying.
Is there anyone listening?

I forgot how to love.
Does it still exist?
I forgot how to hate.
No I didn’t.
Go fuck yourself.

Footnote: I actually wrote the above exactly one year ago today. I just never got around to posting it. Wow, was I in a mood or what? I feel much better now. :-)
