when this is all

when this is all
over, we will not try
to revive any
of it, not try
to recall the degree
of paralysis, not
try to recollect
the isolation, a
lifetime in limbo,
we will only
remember and
release, remember
and release,
remember and
release, release

i am merely a

i am merely a
bike ride away
from feeling
lost and found –
memories often
go ‘round and
‘round, stuck
hard greasing
the wheels

we are coating the
surfaces of our
journey, making
the things we
do together
stickier –
it’s a slow process,
but we have
two paintbrushes

we make room to tuck
in myriad journeys, hold on
to illustrations

so that we can visit when
we wish, doodle in margins

we build memories

we build memories
on origami shelves, multi-
tiered, delicate.
the weight of this
reminder alone
gingerly shifts our
balance, pulls on
each minute like
they were loosening
petals
with seconds
to spare

our memories are wrapped

our memories are wrapped
in cushions of untruths. when
you say i recall, how much is it
a re-calling, a re-placement of
the conditions – the sounds,
the tastes, even that puncturing
aroma of sweet and savory,
the one that beckons bite me
