this particular memory
only exists in two places
and it’s different in my head
than it will be in yours
so it goes, with each new
it changes…
now you sit way over there
with much better ones
that have shifted and shaped
and distorted the old—
these brand new stories
have pretty much taken
their place among the real…
but here I am holding
the last golden pictures,
paper-thin remains,
cracked and creased
and so very wrinkled,
watching them
continue to fall apart
in my hands
