the sight of the fantasy / the seen of the crime

everyone wants to go back

to the site, to the scene

of favorite fleeting configuration(s)

and wild combos

but there is a way to keep things so raw 

they don’t calcify

into nostalgia or trauma

and instead keep kicking like 

fish in a stocked pond

or pot marigold 

reseeding itself

just listen in closely

for all the world’s rhyming 

and keep composing anew each day

like hitting refresh on memory
