Memory Garden

     After The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali

 


memory--

     you are a mess of weed mass

     bold in clusters of unbalanced 

     shadow-light falling in crinkled
     tiers on the blush vividness 

              of rebirth cycles

 
     flouncing bell-wings in rich 

     tempting sensation   stories 

     shrunk-swallowed by time 

     into uneasy silences motioned 

              by unseen power


     until the bittersweet dust 

     of mother earth welcomes 

             my undivided whole
