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…
