we seem to remember things as though
they lived in a jar in our heads,
and we pluck out days and grandmothers,

and infantile murders, whether love
stores them there as the cell's treasured

they are our "me" that writes our “now” thus -
we might as well say they happened
that we may re-member today
might as well believe that years stay
