Right Now

I thought of something
I wanted to write about
but I forgot
what it was.

It seemed really important
at the time.

In fact, if I recall
correctly, it was one
of those moments
when I could see behind
everything--the people,
the trees, the air--
and it felt like I knew
something unknowable.

But now I don't know
what it was.

They say, "Never forget,"
but I think everything
I've forgotten, which is
almost everything, was
stuff I didn't need
to know.
I once saw a picture
of myself five years previous
and I couldn't remember
if I was ever her.

I can remember right now.
