Remembering for beginners, by Britta Benson

I’ve been playing around with the concept of memory last night and filled plenty of pages in my notebook. Today, I decided to distill my thoughts into a little poem. So here goes. Remembering for beginners. The simply guide.

Remembering for beginners

Remember, forget,

remember, forget,

repeat before milestones

become millstones in your head.

Let dark sand gather on your window sill,

dust off your soul, then blow, blow, blow

the flotsam and jetsam into the tidal flow

of your ginger moon heart.

Remember, forget,

remember, forget,

repeat before milestones

become millstones in your head.
