to bear in mind
water-bearer -- is that an insult? --
something about completeness,
as an ideal...
"you make me com/plete/ly miserable"
distress causing self-destructive behaviour.
"que sera, sera"
what will I think?
what will I make?
I'll remember increasingly less,
I'll make a delusional narrative, a version of events,
in the service of remaining a little bit sane.
oh this language barrier,
"well loved" is an euphemism for "used"
systems' exclusions and inclusions
is that smile for me,
that grin, that grimace, a result?
does loss commemorate love?
what do we mark when we recall
slings and eros?
