hanging lovers (recollection)

hanging lovers (recollection)

she kept all her
former lovers hanging

in the closet
of her mind

these she had loved
& invited inside

before the inevitable
& the leaving

although she realized
memories cannot be left

behind like lovers
hanging all in a row

recollection is not the same as memory

memory is a spontaneous thing
like breathing or scratching the back of your head

recollection is a purposeful thing
deciding to gather to organize to treasure

& then to do that all again

& again
