water tower

a bright crisp saturday afternoon
 looking down
 broadway or maybe it was amsterdam
 i am lucky
 i can remember
 where i am now
 as for
 where i was then
 i dont even remember when when was

  do you have memory issues?

i know
 once upon a time
 i never wrote anything down
 i had such an amazing memory

 if i dont do
 whatever it is 
i was thinking of doing
 right at that moment 
chances are
 i will forget

 lets not even discuss 
the number of times
 i have got up
 from somewhere 
to go get or do something
 walked to do it
 had no idea 
 i was going

 i exaggerate

 i call it 

 as in
 some times i remember
 some times i don't
