A Fading Memory--By Eleanor Michael--United States

A Fading Memory

I enlist the help
of a wind-up timer
and reminder lists.
The timer wakes me
if I doze, reminds me
to check food left
cooking on the stove.

Reminder lists function
as a guide to leftovers
in the big deep freeze
as well as what I need
from the grocery store.
This only goes bad
if I forget to buy
a new “to do” pad.

Eleanor Michael has published poetry and short stories in a variety of venues.
