i've gotten into the habit of
naming poems after your memory
perhaps aware of how generic
they would eventually become,
like how grainy your smile has grown
leaking out from
second-hand moments
i have hoarded over the years.

poems are more enduring,
something powerful that
i can own
like stacks of flaking photos
diluted by sentiment,
thinned by pride
but still as potent as
the day they were born.
