crumbled and rolled

Sore from straining to recall a self,
Reading words hoarded on the shelf
Applied as salve to the amnesiac,
Reborn in the snake year Zodiac

Symbols squirreled away, sequestered
Carefully stored, the better to remember
Scattered fragments of bygone Septembers
Immortalized in memories destined to fester

Forest fires form new growth
As ideation is subject to sublimation
There is a universal oath
Regret then forget beget creation

Thoughts outlive hulls vulnerable and vernal,
Our metonyms and memes alone eternal.
