In the Past Petals are Unfallen

“wholly unremembered”

  • Lyn Hejinian

 

 

Yesterday’s rose is

As different now

As the one fresh cut

before me unfolds.

Memory’s an echo

Charged by distance—

Accurate as much

As a teller’s

Moment’s shape’s

Maintained:

My thoughts

Muddy my past,

Past even a passing

Resemblance of love.
