vinegary
hank

he died before the internet
 1
therefore you won't find him
 2
google is acetone to memories
 3
 
 
lima beans, beets, chopped spinach
 4
in a small side bowl with vinegar
 5
and our veggies when she turned
 6
 
 
his name graphically exists in the analog
 7
of my more powerful than internet brain
 8
on the tank of a blueish harley davidson
 9
the cowl of a red steel snap-on toolchest
 10
 
 
he could pound a cherished hearty knife
 11
through deer pelvis with found forest object
 12
he could demand a boy miss school
 13
'you're coming with me today' ok!
 14
 
 
he lived before the advent of the net
 15
and no net grew around him but us
 16
far gone, forgone before a search
 17

The internet scrubs memories, paints facts.

I like this poem a lot! esp. L3.
I found L7-10 slow though. What are you getting at? It feels repetitive, not saying it IS but it feels that way...
Respect for a nice read though!
