memories ours, keeper encoding
meaning, memories, converting
encoded meaning  
yesterday, today, tomorrow

Another Go (Poem)

Coffee and plastic
Get me working
Push my mind
Wake me, gather me
To my benefit (at least) that
I might benefit any other of
This world – during this wakeful  
window destined to end
16-20 hours before
Waking again to
Do it all over again
Perhaps a different way.
