What of Now

Craig Lefebvre

Specific Ingredients, what are they?
How is it, that they are
How is it that they've become

Fingering through the old photo albums
What were they, other than lapses in time
Who made it possible for this to be

And what of time
where has it been and gone off to
For if growing up were so hard
why do the memories seem so fond to me

These memories
There who I've become
Undress me
remove my cloak of thought
I'm bare memory, that's all
