In the Memory Zoo

In the Memory Zoo, people are wild;

Things get grey if you look at them too long.

There are artifacts, but not for purchase.

Yearning to see a certain memory,

 

You may not see it—“That one is sleeping

Behind the wall,” the zookeeper tells you,

Or “That memory has a strange sickness,

So it was removed from the exhibit.”

 

After an hour in the Memory Zoo,

You feel too tired to go on, you look for

An exit, a way back to the Present,

Saying to yourself “I’ll be back, and I’ll

 

See that strange, sick memory…”  You walk straight

Toward the gate of the Present—to your fate.
