The poetic city: “Having Become What She Always Feared 2/8/14”

Having Become What She Always Feared   2-8-14 


Having forgotten who I am

Helen greets me warmly.


Having forgotten that she loves jazz

She listens enraptured.


Having forgotten that she knows how to dance

She dances with grace and style.


Having forgotten to be afraid of forgetting

Helen finds peace at the bottom of her fears.
