To Forget

    Then the chief cupbearer said to Pharoah
 " I remember my faults today."
                         Genesis 41:9

The cupbearer forgot that Joseph teased meaning from his dream, forgot that Joseph asked him to remember him with kindness, to put in a good word with Pharaoh so that he might leave the prison, yet when the cupbearer left prison he forgot Joseph, forgot Joseph's kindness, his skill at  interpreting dreams, and the cupbearer never looked back until he couldn't move forward without telling of Joseph's skill

The Cupbearer

I looked at my reflection
in calm waters
and threw a flat rock
to disturb the still portrait,
to look at the places
that didn't conform
and wept
