teflon brain

*teflon is the non-stick pan material




as a small child, wide-eyed

i climbed and fell on that slide

but my teflon brain forgot the pain

and i scrabbled up again


i met you one day after school

before, i was made to feel a fool

but my teflon brain forgets the pain

bad memories don’t leave a stain


disappointment is like thunder

despair tears me asunder

but my teflon brain forgets the pain

your arms staved off the rain


your voice raised at me

and back at you i scream

but my teflon brain forgets the pain

only your tears’ warmth remains


one day, i’ll lose my reading glasses

we’ll both move slow as molasses

my teflon brain forgets your repeated jokes

i’ll still laugh until i choke
