On Your Head


The pencil –

it’s behind

your ear,

your glasses


your head

You put them


the last time

Why am I


brain dead?

The shopping list

sits smirkely –

left behind on

my unmade bed.

The cat’s been

fed twice

this morning,

He knows

he’s well


But where are my

fucking glasses?

Where I put them –




I’ve been to and from

the same

room three times!

With my forgetful,



I forget just about

everything –

but mainly my glasses

on my head.

And I know I stashed

a joint


But it’s not there

where I said.

I forget just about



the glasses

on my head…
