Poem a Day, Day 19

This challenge was to write about those memories that you don't really have. Stories from being a baby, being drunk, being in a coma, etc. Here's my go at this...

Memories That I Don't Remember

I don't remember being called

'Buddha' due to my baby belly

flopping over my baby legs

I don't remember standing

in my crib, calling my

grandpa 'Ah-ho!'

I don't know if I truly

remember being terrified

of ET in the theater

but the squeamish-ness

at the sight of that

long-headed alien remains...

-Justin M. Howe
