memories sometimes

memories sometimes
turn into silhouettes, we

the shape, but need one another

forgotten, our pandemic fog

every three-point-two

every three-point-two
flights, we remember to ask
mom to prepare some

freshly cut apple pear slices
to soothe whatever the journey

at every other

at every other
corner of the
city, a

to remember,
to forget,

becoming familiar

becoming familiar
with new streets starts
with forgetting old
ones, making room
for new turns and
bumps in the road,

of place, so
that we will

brush to paper,
paper to sponge,
dry on wet,
wet on wet
