Soul

by George Hoerner

My soul
I lost
I’m sure
Somewhere
It fell from
My pocket
Along the
Roadside
But what road
Which state
My memory
Barely recalls
My name
Let alone
What last
State I visited
So I no longer
Know where
To go or worse
What to do
What is right
Or what is wrong
I’ve always done
As I pleased
Without hurting
Too many people
Oh there might be
A woman who
Would disagree
Though I only
Recall being slapped
Once

As always, George a thoughtful poem. I was never slapped by a woman, but I was whacked in the head by one ( my lovely wife ) that knocked me for more loops than I can count. I don't know why she did it, but she did. We were having a heated argument in the kitchen over who knows what and bang! Out of the blue, the wallop of a lifetime,
