Fever Dream

I learned Latin yesterday
and promptly forgot everything I learned.

I watched two biopics on Hemingway
and failed to understand the literary reverence.

Maybe it was the forgetting as with Latin.
That was last Tuesday.

Hopefully not the last Tuesday ever.
No. Not the last Tuesday but the penultimate.

I suppose I suffer some hard to pronounce disease
delivered by mosquitos.
