Art Of Memory - Poem by Maria Sudibyo

Because the happiness, because the irony
Because the importance, because it is funny
Because the promise, because the faith
Memory is remembered

Whether daily, whether eventful
Whether beautiful, whether sad
Whether planned, whether accidental
Memory is made everyday

Because the time, because the nature
Because the trauma, because the secret
Because the plan, because the fear
Memory is forgotten

For the shame of dignity, for the hunger of power
In white lies, in written history
By erasing some fact, by adding impact
Memory is manipulated

By the flash of look, by the said word
By the thing, by the thought
By the shocking impact, by unconscious dream
Memory is triggered again
