The first 365

They said it would happen this way.
You are still in the ventricles
And the involutions,
Only deeper now.
I need longer chains of neurons
To reach you
Now.
You no longer lurk around
Corners.
You no longer lurch in front of me in my
Meanderings.
You no longer stop me in my
Tracks.
I am no longer startled by your
Absence.
I am struck by the sweetness of the
Memory.
