Gogyohka 9.18.09

What if a memory bank
really existed?
What would be taken out?
What would you deposit?
And what currency?

If time
is memory's currency
then does burning your stash
make you a warm, generous amnesiac
or just cackling alone?

Gather up
the first fallen leaves
and burn them
swirling in the first cool wind
See the crisp fast flames

Sitting in an armchair
in a suburb
in a warm house
with an alarm system
the TV tuned to wild bloodcries of sport
