By Amrita Nair


I’m forgetting my name again.
I’ve forgotten it before.
I left all the letters in a park one day
I forgot to round them up
I forgot to bring them home
So, now when I’m forgetting my name again
It’s easier because I’ve done it before.

    This is like a dance of innocent charm set to naughty music. Playful and fun, but with a pulse of mystery, too. Nice finish, also!

    I loved this!

    Not a game, not a game, not a game. We’re talking about practice.
