New Year by Valeri Beers

No revising
this one
No revisiting
that one

Try to
find
new words
for
old problems
Try to
save
the
good ones

Remember
Remember
Remember

I
will be
the
poetry person
among
the
book people

Remember
Remember

————————-
About this poem:  What if poems were
like calendars?  You had to throw them
away & write all new poems?  Erica
Jong told me to try to save the good ones 🙂

Have you seen the movie Fahrenheit
451? At the end of the movie, the
“book people” have remembered a book,
committed it to memory and then burned it.
