LEST YOU FORGET

You’ll find often
Those around you will
Have trouble letting go
Of who they thought you were
Let them be troubled, then
Let them court
a moment of certainty
At your expense
They too will one day
Be shambled in wonder
At the fabric of themselves
As we all must shatter
Again and again
But today perhaps is your day
Yes, I’m sure of it
And the price for clarity
Comes at the cost
Of their confoundedness
Pay it in full, then
Revel in their discomfort
And your own
Burn the very book
You wrote about yourself
And write it again
With all the parts you love
And nothing further
And do it as many times
As you please
Until you are the story
You want told.
