no, we will never

we collect memories

we collect memories
in irregularly-sized
vessels, in the hope

that they will not leak, find their
way out, look for something more

the random knick-knacks

the random knick-knacks
we inherit are more or
less meaningless – we

keep them around as an after-
afterthought, collecting meaning

most have-nots are not

most have-nots are not
about the things or even
things – we collect these

stories because that is all
we have to turn the great tide

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: collect

on the first day of

on rainy mornings,

on rainy mornings,
we collect puddles, folding in
each corner with care

so that only the chosen
reflections spill when retrieved

without meaning to,

without meaning to,
we collect one another’s
words with devotion,

inject intent helplessly,
and still love inescapably

in the end, memories

we are collecting

we are collecting
the best of one another
as if it were the

end of summer already –
eyes and pools sparkling

for all the data

for all the data
we collect from one
another, day to
day, minute
to minute, perhaps
we are building
a universal
reference on
ourselves, as if
there could be
a perfect equation
to calculate the
gravitational tug
from person to
person, something
we can keep
in our back pocket
