we seem to remember things as though
they lived in a jar in our heads,
and we pluck out days and grandmothers,
fathers and the sun on our ancient skin,
hallowed lights of childhood or drunken
Greek beaches, hours resurrected
and infantile murders, whether love
stores them there as the cell's treasured
burden, or whether we reconstruct them
from nothing, as figments of nothing,
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
