I Have No Past – by Samuel Amazing Ayoade BlazingPen

I Have No Past
Yesteryear’s memories are blanc
but I knew I was born
neither how grew I
from neonate of vulnerability
to a miserable wretched I was
but I knew I grew anyhow
from a non-existent past
scarecrows – as tho they did not exist –
tend to draw me back to the vomit
to eat the flesh of my dead self
and wallow in the ditch of my excreta
until
I discovered
I have no past.
