Memory Ln.

​Is there such a place as Memory Lane
Where you can meet old friends
Loved-and-losts
No-longer-with-us’s
(Are we allowed anymore?)

Does it bisect the part of town you grew up in
And where you live now
Is there a cafe you can sit at
For the length of a sigh

Is it a space, a negative
Or is it material — firmsoftsharpwarm

Do you find it or does it find you
Suddenly
There you are
​Like you always have been​
(​Like that one time.)

​Can you put it on a map
So you can find it again when you need it
​Leave when it gets cold
Or is it like staring at the sun at night
Without eyelids
