noted

it begins as a wisp
neither taut nor explicit
a scribbled idea
on a plain yellow post-it,
sitting for weeks
til the stickiness faded
then moved ’round the table
it’s purpose degraded
and ultimately lands
in pile, curled – misled
like so many of my thoughts
of desire go unread.

        Thanks to you both. I’ve been collecting thoughts as scraps for poems for a while. Sometimes they don’t surface again.
