Forget the Forget

from by Paul Melancon



Can you feel us drifting?
It’s the lack of light
and the camera’s sleepy eye
slowly tracking off line
But while the feeds are changing
the satellite dreams on
and no one’s looking
but someone might

That bad moon’s been sleeping around
just to forget the forget

She says, “I’m this time
but no more.”
And she’ll smile that same smile
just to let me know
But to keep the moment going
I turn around again
I’m a string of hopeful words
tied off too tight with a knot I invited in

Your intent is in your eyes
and it throws my shadow on the wall
Satellite information coming in
makes your real defenses hard to detect

While the tension mounts on
you run maneuvers in the desert sun
as I push past the line
and pass resolutions and hope for more time
But our missiles have flown…
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
and forget the forget
forget the forget
