Memory and Milk


In her car,
while the day grew black and thick
as tar,
I recited a poem

about memory and milk,
sun and God,
Love and death,

Her eyes
grew wide and luminous
like the poem
itself.

We learned about each other while day became vast night
than we would have in a thousand and one lifetimes.
The words on a page, which seeped into my soul
became stitched onto her heart.

In a matter of days, weeks, and months,
I can no longer recite the poem
from memory.

But it doesn’t matter.

The moment
we reveled in is a poem
in itself.

A poem I can recite from memory.
A poem too bright to fade,
which conjures up eyes,
luminous and wide as the poem

about memory and milk,
sun and God,
Love and death.
