Sometimes, I end up combining things…
I’ve seen the statue
only a small piece remains
Where did the rest go?
The touch of a stranger’s hand
brought me here to see what’s left
If I could trace the memory
what shape would it take?
Would I recognize it as something familiar
or as a stranger I’ve never met?
Maybe a strange figure I don’t recognize
is what I need right now—
if it can tell me something I need to know…
