By Joan McNerney


through time
as I lay thinking
always remembering

how this crapshoot of life
crushed my dreams spinning
me into an unlikely comedy

listening to a busy world
trains, ships, planes,
never ending hiss of cars

revved up motorcycles
loud televisions, shouts,
radios, alarms, sirens

shifting memories
over in my mind trying
to find some pattern

finally night, long, deep
and black covers me with
blankets of forgetfulness
