STONE HAS NO MEMORY

STONE HAS NO MEMORY

No, stone has no
memory, unread.
You said to read
the monument to
the fishing dead
from the trawler;
but the lines that
bind Back Then fast
to Here and Now
grow taut and break
and the boat must
drift at last into
the forgotten past:
stone unread
becomes a lost
anchor.

(Julian O’Dea)

    Perhaps we are truly dead when there is no one left to remember us.
