Shelf-life of a Time and Place

by C. S. E. Cooney

memories

are finite

have a half-

life, gather

dust

with disuse

*

grasp one

it brightens, also

thins

rough edges worn

details crumble

*

distrust

what remains

pale treasures

smudged prints of

the past

*

but follow

follow their trail

back and back, until–

eureka

***

for gene
