Remembering to forget,

And grasping every subtlety

Of forgetting to remember

That it’s a piece incomplete

Grasping every subtlety

To satiate this tapped soul,

Loosening the inexplicable wires

Who kept it tightly entwined.

It’s forgetting to remember

That it’s a piece incomplete.

And convincing oneself

Of one’s own defeat.

Doubt boils

In the fragmented pit.

A bubbling softness towards the comprehension

Of the crime that was too easy to commit.


I asked you, Circus members, to send me words which I will use as inspiration for short poems. Each piece is titled according to the word it was inspired by.

Love, Sidian
