IF ALONE MEMORIES ARE ERASABLE !


IF ALONE MEMORIES ARE ERASABLE!


&



IS TOTAL ERASURE POSSIBLE?



WHEN THE BODY IS INCINERATED



THE ASH REMAINS-



HOW THEN TO ERADICATE THE ASH?



INCIDENTS DIE



BUT THE MEMORIES STICK ON-



HOW THEN TO ERASE THE MEMORIES?



&



WHEN GOOD THINGS WANE



AS THE FOOTPRINTS OF THE BREEZE



THE PRESSURE OF VIOLENT THOUGHTS



AS CHISELLED PRINTS ON ROCK



REMAIN INDELIBLE IN THE RECESSES OF MEMORY-



IN THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT



AND DEEP IN THE NEST OF THE IRIS



MEMORIES GLOW IN RED HOT FLAMES-



HOW THEN TO ERASE MEMORIES?



&

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
