Found Poem

Life is one found poem after another these days.  I am listening and listening and listening.  And there is love.  This, between two students, the other day:

Why is it so bad
To forget
In The Odyssey?
It's, like, a sin.

Because you are your story.
That's your life.
And if you forget it,
You won't know who you are
Anymore.

Oh.  That's deep.

So Odysseus doesn't want to forget
Because he wants to get home.

"You go where love takes you, and that's it." (Joseph Campbell)

  1. 'You go where love takes you' Isn't that the truth.
