Impressions

You have heard it said that you are where you have been; you are, this is true

 

You are, and you are what you eat: gram by gram, ounce by ounce, pound by pound

 

Amino acids, proteins housing memories, engram by engram

 

 

Wraiths rush past me, reflections in the dirty-glass, reaching out for me

 

The rainfall pools, collected in the dirty-street, ghosts jump in the light

 

 

Places I have been, the trajectory of fate—weaving memories

 

Warped purpose, threads patterns on the loom, spindle fibers and neurons

 

Electrons repeat on the skein, loop in their circuit, strange and funny

 

Projections of the self, shuttled forward and backward, upside down through time

 

 

Lowly little worms emerging from the cocoon, butterflies with horns

 

Chrysalis in the milk-weed, monarchs in the street dressed in silk, burnt orange

 

 

Soft winds returning, lilac scents my garden, warm rains after winter
