Alan Whitehorn: Forgetting and Recalling

There is an advantage of writing
compared to speaking before a live audience.
In putting pen to paper,
I have time to wait for the train of thought
to come around the track again.
Hopefully, this time I will not miss my carriage.
What is that I hear?
Is it the engine whistle in the distance?
I must begin to get ready.
But wait,
what track was it scheduled on?
I need to remember.
I need to remember.
What was that sudden swoosh in the night?
Have I missed the train again?
