a Few Words

lethologica

a sonnet about verbal forgetfulness

that feeling when you can’t recall a word
that sits elusively on tip of tongue —
you’ve used it often, so it seems absurd
that now it will not from your brain be wrung

“that woman, in that show” — you know the drill —
the more you strain, the more your mind will spill
