Fridge Diary

My little flat has little wall
space in my kitchen for a little
whiteboard for engagements,
daily times I must remember.
Cupboards stove fridge washing
machine all throng its walls.

My diaries migrate these days
for I no longer have a desk at
work where I spread my paper.
I do not see those shifting
diaries, I forget important dates.

So now I keep a list on the
fridge for crucial dates
over the next few months.
I often pass the fridge
then remember to check
the next few days ahead.

There are more medical
appointments than I had
realised, my body must
be getting quite ricketty
in my drawn out old age.

So I make sure I also
study my business dates
and social engagements.
