Ode To Forgetfulness - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

thank god for my forgetfulness
i can read some of my poems
like they were written by somebody's else
appreciate them with total impartiality
like walking through a paradise of varied blooms
the best shot is in the discovery that they are
actually from the garden of my thoughts
such beautiful thngs, oh my God did i write this?
did i write this? the heart that would scream
thank God, thank God
