Response to Lora’s poem on 4/3


Lora says “i’m tired of writing
to lost lovers”
and ain’t that the damn truth.
Tired of spreading thin
these memories that have seen
more replays than a pop song.
You can make anything real
in your mind
in your words and stories.
But truth? That is not
created, and still not known.
Even electronically speaking –
Computed /  Calculated.

I am only concerned with
wrapping my mind around
fermented thoughts – drinking them dry
and culturing a new moment,
to turn into new circular
