Memory

Memory
by Michael R. Burch

A black ringlet
curls to lie
at the nape of her neck,
glistening with sweat
in the evaporate moonlight...
This is what I remember
now that I cannot forget.

That memory has now been eroded by time. Some inkling of what went on.

Yes, a hazy memory. " Eroded by time" is a good description.

Interesting poem. I like how the poet dealt with subject -Memory. and how memery can be tricky and paradoxical sometimes. it surprises when we remember things of less significant about a person or place, etc-forgetting the 'most obvious-a shouldn't be facts. nothing you can do about it-selective memory.
