in the dream after

in the dream after
the dream that is just before
waking, bamboo soup,

the way mom cooks it at home,
a memory for the journey

memories sometimes

memories sometimes
turn into silhouettes, we
can still remember

the shape, but need one another
to help fill in the details

at any given
moment, memories become
carbonated, rise,

rising, risen, until they
reach the surface of consent

freshly cut apple pear slices
to soothe whatever the journey

at any given

at any given
moment, i pick up a
memory at the
lost and found, turn

signature, measure
the half-life of the
grooves, in the Y,
the L, weigh its
tickle factor, look
for the nearest
trading post

here and there, we will
need a reprieve from all this
intensity – a

strand of memory twisting
around spring’s makeshift trellis

it takes at least two

it takes at least two
memories to create a
working solenoid

through which we become unlocked
at the push of a button

after some time, when

after some time, when
the memory is worn, we
may come across this

exact spot on a winter’s
day and be strangely tickled
