A Memoir

South Netherlandish (?), "Glass Fragment," colorless glass, 16th century, Gift of George D. Pratt, 1930, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

and we were dying a little every day

fleshy leftovers on tilted sidewalks

failing to leave an imprint

even the sun seemed to weep

and the shadows never quite faded

even as day broke

even as we held our hands up

hoping for something to cling to
