Self Adhesive

I look to make minor improvements
In the way I remember my life
And select very carefully the things
I bother to remember at all

Always endeavoring to be the best
Person I can remember being

Patching up the gaffes and goofs
As they appear (if they even dare to)
And doing a damn fine job of it too
If memory serves

    1. Thanks Douglas! I think I may have buried my intended meaning under too much misdirection. Meaning we should, like Buddhists, look soberly at our actions and not mask them with exaggerations or refuse to look at them if they are unflattering…


      1. I hope my reply wasn’t flippant in mood. I hold you in high esteem. Also I am relating in a most concrete way. For I get on the horse and it has a mind of its own taking me to some unintended watering hole. Being thirsty, I don’t notice at first. Then all at once it hits me, as if I’m in some Talking Heads song “How did I get here?”
