Best Poem of Joseph DeMarco

The Persistence Of Memory

We all hear the internal clock ticking,
A self-contained Doomsday device,
Melting like a candle in the desert heat

Shaded by our consciousness,
We try to ignore the Fun House mirrors
That manipulate our memory.

Our minds as flat as pancakes
Are screaming for persistence
And there's something that looks slightly like a deflated goose on the sand.

Our memories are not real
They happen to be past-tense fantasies
Reality souped-up on steroids

Hounding us like a dog
we bargain with memory
and give in to its demands.

Invisible Prison

“Those who don't know their history
Are condemned to repeat themselves.”
For we are reincarnation's red-headed step child
Beaten by the wicked path,
Repeating ourselves occluded by our amnesia
Walking where ourselves once were,
Unaware that we were ever there,
Unaware that the mistakes of our ancestors
Were OUR MISTAKES,
