I Can't Remember Pennsylvania

Updated: Sep 2, 2020

I really did visit Pennsylvania on a family vacation. I don’t really remember it...but it was in a cabin in the woods (not Youngstown—I’m just a sucker for word-play).

When I was young, I went to Youngstown

Now I see the irony, but that point is pointless

I have searched the corners of my memory, but

I can’t remember Pennsylvania

Now I have heard that they got some mountains there

I recall the hills, but that was in Colorado or somewhere

I have seen the videos on TV, but

I can’t remember Pennsylvania

Darkness and trees—I’ve seen all of these

But never in the town of Philly

I’m sure presidents have built up many a fence

But I got in and don’t remember

I can’t remember Pennsylvania

I can’t remember

Shotgun to Memphis

And in distant trees, requiems and melodies remain. Retorts in rhapsody, feels like I’ve been in here for days, and days, and days.
