Memory

Memory is the feeling of a time snapped into motionless

Memory is a silent phrase we see in a flash of organic

Memory still us for a fraction of our being from where we sit,

 stand or move through empty canvas.

It is not a trapped goal or a bright flare of mercy, but

a subtle blank slate of hard wired molecules in an

electric charge that excited you to action

You can activate your memories by testing the thoughts that

haunt the dreams you have at night,

You can form a memory by instilling a smile of thanks into

a willing recipient.

You can erase a memory by choosing to ignore the

implications of it.

Your memories are collected in a porcelain

cup with a broken handle.
