Phillip Glass

I feel like I’m forgetting who I am
I fell in the tub and I couldn’t get out for an hour

I fell and I saw my life flashing before me
My life interpreted through bits of light and blurs of blue

And distorted wind chimes and I couldn’t get out of the tub
Til I recalled the name of that Einstein Beach man

It is not Phillip Glass
It is certainly not Robert Altman

It is glassy though
Fragments of memory glinting around me

I count my fingers and I count the flecks of dirt beneath them
And I try to count the microscopic things I cannot see

Meghan Lamb recommends Very Beautiful Women, an eBook from Pangur Ban Party.

(For December at Everyday Genius, contributors were asked to recommend something elsewhere on the Internet.)
