Double espresso.


When you forget to float,

but remember to stand.


Forget to draw imperfect circles,

but remember to trace a single, straight line.


Forget to speak in invented tongues,

But remember synonyms for everything.

( each thing, every single thing, the lot, the entirety, the total).


When you forget your post code,

but remember precisely where you store all your dreams and memories.


When you forget that mirrors exist,

and you start re-making yourself up

from scratch.
