we build up new layers
of memories to insulate
the old, not replace

in the middle of
the night, enough brain cells have
mutinied, kept me

awake for as long as they

perhaps months,

perhaps months,
years from now, these
days will become
foggy, it’s how our
minds insist on
playing games with
our hearts – now you see
me, now you don’t

we have no choice as
witnesses, obligated
to make out every
fine detail in the
heightened haze

in between the sips

in between the sips
we take of one another,
let us bump into

unidentifiable
things, savor uncertainty

perhaps words are our

perhaps words are our
very first
spices, nestled
on our tongues
like lost and
found
treasures, waiting

lived experiences,
make little

maybe it is as
you say –

mystery, stay
inescapably
enchanted

an ocean of new old memories
attacking old memories

rule out that there are
new molecular
connections here, a
dendritic extension
able to achieve
supplementary
information transmission
with each neuron
synapse, so that

every one-sixty-

every one-sixty-
seventh of a second, our
neural detectors
miss a fraction
of a signal,
miscalculate
the weight of a
sensation, allowing
for a natural
and inescapable
buildup –
some days become
just noise, some
years, irretrievable
