when we all forgot

Photo of ivy and morning glories.

an evening lullaby would be suitable, i think

for being grown up is a tiring thing

with long, weary days and responsible thoughts

when we all forgot how to play

a mid-afternoon nap would be suitable, i say

for being awake is a tiring thing

with daydreams taking the place of our nights

when we all forgot how to sleep

a morning poem would be suitable, i bet

for being so brief is a tiring thing

with short, quickened breaks and rushed afterthoughts

when we all forgot how to speak


when we all forgot
