remember the deed remember A53

A new illness creeps and leaves – a wave that

takes the flesh off my bones and returns it quietly

every few seconds I become anew and

we talk of pasts and strangle landscapes

ignoring changes outside our door


you stay sitting, throwing up old lives as though

nothing will remind you of rings, a move, the day

you created someone real while


I slowly gathered closer, my days reshaping

in my feet. A distraction: I can be there, too.
