Never Forget Me

 

Never Forget Me

Today, I’ll dip
a feather in a pool
of sunlight,

the pool that’s trickled
down the brown shingles,
into the gutter,

and found its rest
where the grass
has yellowed with heat.

I’ll paint my name
on the sidewalk,
as a child would scratch

his name with chalk,
and I’ll know
the earth will never forget me.

  1. Very whimsical. (We did that on our porch when they were building our house, btw, and Drollery spelled his bloomin’ name wrong for all eternity to see! So be careful when you’re writing! 😉 )
