the eff. dee. ay. just approved
Rememeron™
a preventative and cure
for my age-old fears
perhaps it’s in your family too
some tiny worm hungry for
short-term memory/long-term
recall/the hippocampus leaks
appointments first, then directions
home, then daily tasks
socks drop/a barefoot baby
faces are just faces who tell
stories of meals you made
and rollercoasters you rode
and shows you saw…
