how could I forget

how could I forget that on Thursday nights
I still want to write a poem
even if I'm tired,
that time with the husband is important,
that the tomatoes need to be picked before a frost.
I forget,
I forget correct grammar, even in English,
much less in French.
I forget my childrens' birthdays and
what combination of layers do  I need.
A sweater and a jacket for 40F,
or just a warm sweater
I remember that I'll be jogging.
How could I forget to respond to my friend,
Scratchy, but I did and just remembered now.
Hello, Scratchy!
how could I forget?
I'm not sure, but
I did
I do.
