Sifting [Poem Every Day--13]

Document
Cover Image

I sift, obsessed


Through cardboard treasure boxes


Of other people's memories


Fiber reprints from a time and place so far away


In converted barracks where lived 


The residues of war


Familiar faces are rewound,


Wearing expressions that echo down


on through


I comb images for sameness between


Them and me


Hoping to spin an invisible string


Counting clues of things surrounding, I


Grasp for a key


to the past


Answers to questions


Never asked
