Poem Never Written

Last night before falling asleep
had an idea for a poem

but didn’t write it down 

now this morning I can’t recall
even a thread of my inspired tapestry
can’t jar it from memory so instead

I write these jumbled words,
like a drunk reciting the alphabet,
while the best I had to offer 

is still tangled in my pillow
or suffocated and lost
somewhere in my head.
