Twitter poem

I posted this silly poem in pieces on Twitter, but Twitter's lack of line breaks and backwards chronological display of tweets kind of messed up its form. So here it is, in all its glory.

I see it
everywhere and nowhere.
Countless times has it been there
useless, in my way.
I search all of the memories
but each leads me astray.
I try to sort through them all
these scattered fragments.
How can I find the most recent
the most relevant image?
Now that I finally seek it
it has abandoned me.
Where is my frakking raincoat?

I don't know what came over me. It's a raincoat that fits in a pouch, you see, so it's easier to lose than one that I would just hang in the closet. Searching my room is boring, so I found myself composing in my head. It's weird and messy in there.

Apologies to those who already saw this nonsense on Twitter.

Same with my keys. Sadly, I don't write poems when that happens, but yours is fitting ;)

Have a nice day!

Thanks :) Yeah, I don't usually compose poems in my head, but I guess that's why I felt like sharing this rare example.
