remember it if you like
but say nothing
there’s nothing to be said
in speed there is a forgotten tenderness

a memory comes to me
but it is not mine
sound of a merging stream
from the other side of the horizon


The combination of objective realism and subjective realism creates a narrative ambiguity in the sense that any questions that may arise in the work around place, identity and memory are not answered.
