Best Poem of Tom Foster


I’ve lost better poems than this
Boxes crammed
Notebooks full abandoned
Under rapid retreat
Scribbled on a Del taco napkin or
On the back of the phone bill
Thrown away with the trash

Once in awhile one returns to me
Flash of insight like
When walking or
Mowing the lawn
Sometimes I remember them vaguely
A title
A clever phrase
Other times nothing
Not even enough to
Miss what I’ve forgotten
Only the knowledge that
I have indeed
Lost better poems than this
