Unless I Forget
luis c. berriozabal
I procrastinate so much that when it comes time to do what I have to do I have already forgotten what it was I was supposed to do. If I have an appointment at two in the afternoon at the other side of town, I start heading out at two in the afternoon. I have been known to wipe oil all over my hands, a dab of oil on my chin, and explain to those waiting for me that my car broke down and I had to get under the hood to perform needed repairs. It flies sometimes.
Luis C. Berriozabal's new chapbook, Keeper's of Silence, will be published by Kendra Steiner Editions in December 2007.
