Words drift in and out
lost before I can capture them
I swear I will remember
but they wrestle and fight

Words go sideways so fast
but I try to lock them down
sometimes I can; sometimes,
so many words, and rhymes…

What was I saying? Oh yes,
eventually I will get them out
in time I will use them all
before the final curtain call

Stoic Poetry
