The Resistance of Memory
by Nigel HoltIt’s really great to meet you dude, for sure.
Weren’t you here a while ago—don’t you agree?
Whoa! You’ve never seen this weed before?
I’ll take a spin around the bowl, not bore
myself with all the usual—hmm… who’s he?
Yeah! Really great to meet you man, for sure!
I wonder what’s behind that castle door?
I should swim up there and see what’s there to see
—Whoa! I’ve never seen this weed before!
These things, the weed—you know—the more and more
—like this guy’s face—er… now where were we…?
Yeah… really great to meet you man… for sure….
Man, there has to be some natural law
that saves a fish from life’s inanity...
Whoa! I’ve never seen this weed before!
But the more I plan it out, the more I draw
a blank—hey dude! Did you arrive with me?
It’s really great to meet you man, for sure.
Whoa! D’you ever see this weed before?
