Memory’s Ambiguity is Not Enough

UnevenBriskHornshark-max-1mb

 

 

the scraps left

of them fall

without remorse,

as things

of this world

fall away,

like glaciers

calving

into the sea.

 

she writes

a condemnation

of ill-mannered absence;

 

he writes

a lamentation

for what wasn’t there.

 

nothing completes itself

from bits

of memory

like smoke

into air:

 

one moment

a shape hovers,

then is gone

without

consequence.
