My Memory

I have a terrible memory. This morning my friend told me that I actually wrote that poem in college. Though I have no recollection of it, and though i found it in my high school file box, it seems that I wrote it in my interpersonal communication class.

I could've sworn I wrote it in high school. Man. My memory is that of a 95 year old woman.

from the twin,
who has not such powers.

the luck.

never a good time for them to break.
switches, that is.
nor to meet herself,
on the porch.
