Turnover

Every year

departing hordes

leave new heaps

on city curbs:

sagging sofas

broken chests—

detritus of

college years.

Debris of living

bought

at Scandinavian

D-I-Ys.

 

Would that

one could

do the same

for some memories.

Harvest them

from attics

and from cellars.

Leave them

on some

corner

for recycling.

 

Start afresh

in cleaner rooms

with shiny fittings.

Sign up for

new subscriptions

and prescriptions.

Learn the unknown

pathways

of brand

spanking neurons.

Become a regular

at hipper

synapses.
