the BIO poem

I want my bio to read: “I don’t remember!”
I think I don’t remember is better than I don’t care...don’t you?

Seventy silver black-lights ignite the parameters of my time.
Those same silver black-lights have singed the retina of my left eye.

I try to remember why I am wherever I am...
but recall settles just outside my grasp.

So I write my bio in lines I don’t remember...
I think I don’t remember is better than I don’t care

...don’t you?
