incline that challenged us, letting
go of the slippery slide

every town starts some-

every town starts some-
where – from stockholm to newtown,
we try our hardest

to remember or forget,
depending on your station

we were not the first

you never forget

even in helping us

even in helping us
pick out new chairs
for our first dining

grounded,
so that we can
sit up straighter,
remembering
our own roots

birthdays come and go,

memories sometimes

memories sometimes
turn into silhouettes, we
can still remember

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