What Your Mind Lost

The true tellers of memory
Are amazing. They earn
Every accolade, earn every

Publication, every penny.
They’re a different kind of liar.
They clutch. What the mind / keeps, it keeps.

If they went to the hospital
Once, when small, they’ll make you believe
Every storytelling detail.

If they saw horror once or twice,
What the bone of the world looks like,
Really looks like, when it breaks out

Of its smoothly functioning flesh,
They’ll write like the only witness
Who can make you feel what they felt.

You’ve been through the hospitals so
Much that thanks to them you’re still small.
Saw bone. Couldn’t feel it at all.
