Best Poem of Robert Wylie

If The Memory

If the memory I have of you
Were small enough to fill a thimble
I would fill a thimble,
And keep it in my sight.

But, since the memory I have of you
Is battle-size, I will fill a field
Big enough for armies, and
Listen to their noise.

Should the memory I have of you
Diminish, then, through all my years,
I will find, again, the thimble,
And keep it filled within my sight.

Tribal Markings

No regrets about throwing
Cut-throat razors in the air,
And catching them in my teeth,
Such has been my life-long remedy
For the itch of boredom.

True, the risk is there
To miss, just that once,
And I would have minutes to reflect.
