NaPoWriMo Day 2


I have an elephant brain, I keep
     my entire history locked up there

Some memories weigh
     more than others

Some are putting pressure
     on my neck,
     my spine is about to telescope
Some have been stored
     in my sinus cavity
     creating a new source of
     congestion, a new headache
Others still are hiding
     in my ear canal, dulling
     voices and music
But the ones that hurt
     the most are those lurking
     in the corners of my mouth,
     pushing my teeth out
     of position
