memory.

we make light work of things—

like breath, in and out, without

a thought—discard bad dreams

from consciousness, with ease.

The body however—does not forget

remembers things well, like sharp edges

pressed into flesh and the promise of scars

physical—or otherwise, or the climb

to orgasm and the sweet release

even when we ourselves do not.
