a plea

i beg of you,
release or return my previous poem.
i foolishly made no backup copy
(it was bad, why bother?)
but now
(a bit).

in my memory
(which is as honest as my six year old sister (and as honest as i am in claiming to have one))
it gleams,
a little.

there was,
some chrome under all the soap-scum,
when i lie to myself,
i think that it could become something more.

so, i reiterate:
release or return my previous poem,
that i might
(to coin a paltry phrase)
scrub it with the literary equivalent of tub & tile
and see what lies beneath the splatters of mental toothpaste.
