Music we remember to forget
                            —Michael Palmer

I can’t imagine him with a
vibrato.   “It’s the Three of
Pancakes,” she says.   His
head’s a computer screen
circa 1998.   A headache
that blasts 80s music.   A
calendar with a little in-
struction each day: Re-
member, a mediocre
effort never improved
.   Cat’s paws
at it under a birthday
present (an office
chair replacing one
‘inherited’ in 1992).
