Be Forgot

Moment
not to be forgot
in fact whole worlds
are built
upon its import

Small girl
sits alone
in a church vestibule
while adult women chat
adjacent

Oh just
leave her there
she’s pouting
Leave her alone
she needs to learn

Small girl
alone in a vestibule
to be forgot
as women’s laughter
fades

For Karin’s prompt to the Real Toads: TAKE TWO AND SING
(Using the words “be forgot” from Auld Lang Syne)
