Voluntarily cease to keep or claim, nearly

by Pamela

Fleeting and flying
the most beautiful meaningless
light and dark

thing you’ve ever seen.

the hybrids of the unfamiliar
write down one of your vivid moments for me
and make it last;
the experience of being


and frame it
bleach it
place it
in my thought life,
never speak of it again.

and you will fade from my mind like a poem I read years ago and only
fell in love with
