The Memory People

The memory people left
Perception altogether,
The opposite direction

From dementia. Memory
People searched deep and deeper,
Like recovery divers

In an immense glacial lake
Visiting drowned towns and wrecks
Until the only light left

Came from their brilliant headlamps,
And their oxygen tanks turned
Into gills, and they forgot

There ever was a surface,
Down among their memories.
