Memory of Place

Inspired by Keiko Mukaide’s installation

What is the surface that your
Remembered feelings are on?
Stasis. That fixes
The dazzle of then. Then
More beautiful than it ever was.
You hold the memory of a place
For years and years. You do

In the way you bend
Over the unlit wick,
In a room of deadness,
Seeking light
Striking the match, lighting the candle
So you light in your mind
A memory of place …
To drift: To stall.
