If All Else Fails, Keep Reading

Tell yourself a story to make
Your story seem alright. The hunt
For something new in memory,

Something new outside memory
That gives memory what it wants,
A shadow in the woods in snow,

A city abandoned to weeds,
An airport terminal in sun
That gilds empty seats by the gates

Where no one but you is waiting,
Although you’re not really waiting,
Not for a flight in any case,

Just wanting to see what happens
Inside this hazy memory
That’s not quite yours, not yet happened.
