Tip of the Tongue

By: Katherine Goldblatt

I just had it,

right here,

on the tip of the tongue.

I swear,

it was wonderful!

You would have sung praises for it.

That is how wonderful it was.

If only I could recall it.

It shrunk to the size of a crumb,

slipped and swung through the gap between my teeth

and left before I could speak it into existence.

I shall follow it with persistence

and find it.

After all, it was only on the tip of the tongue.

Right here!

Surely you would have loved it.

I loved it; you would too.

If only I could remember it…

Let the posts
come to you.
