"When we can no longer dream, we die" -Emma Goldman

after a while we forget the little things.
the girls name you sat next to in elementary school
your 7th grade math teacher's hair color
i've got to wait for the forgetting to start
for the holes to patch themselves
i've got to get ready to stand still
and forget it all
let it all fade away
sweat it out
will being busy make it go that much faster?
or will the thoughts make being busy that much harder?
the more you shove in your brain the more you forget
so learn about china, knitting and the geography of Azerbaijan
and forget your smell, forget your laugh, forget your smile
when you say it's easy, do you mean in retrospect or in the now?
because right now it's the hardest thing in the world
