Today's poem is by Gilbert Allen
"To Forget Its Creator Is One of the Functions of a Creation"
E. M. Forster
So memory is the absent
letting things slip
out of mind and sight
to make discovery
And God is no
which is the why
of these strange, awful creatures
whose creator would envy
their lost footprints, if He could.
