Treasure Chest

mustacheMost of the time…

I write to ward off the forgetting,
To crystallize the moment,
To graffiti the hero
With mustache and rabbit ears,
For my memory is kinder to me
Than I deserve.

But sometimes…

I write to build monuments,
Ineffable, flawed memorials
To the sweetly fleeting moments,
The trappings of nascent love,
For memory is too poor a vessel
To hold such treasure.
