Memorare

Let go of books, signs, talk,

black coffee and applause.

Walk the path of evening alone

in broad daylight, swallowing

pills for pain, recalling

how you sprang up the stairs

singing, even in time of war . . .

–excerpt from “Memorare” in To Sip Darjeeling at Dawn by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective 2011). First published in After Hours.
