Gracie -- I think.

Thought I filed her
in the drawer,
third one down
I thought,

in amongst the
clutter of things
I should have ought,

Her name is lost
to reason
many seasons
past and gone,

Though her face--

her face is
emblazoned on

this evening setting sun.


Last few words: 
ah well.

little poem that lets one enter the realm of your private thoughts. Nice job! I wonder who Gracie is?
~ Geez.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

“In the drawer
Third one down,
I think”

Masterful in drawing the reader in right away!

Love the imagery of having too many things in the file cabinet…
