Writing during daylight—how novel!
He has removed altogether
every trace of himself
His name is still attached
but not the one he was born with
35 mm negatives
and strategically arranged metal particles
on aging media
form the record by which he will be remembered
Will he remember?
Her drama played out
News of her death revealed
what was secret in her life
The sympathy that might have been
never got to come out of hiding
Did she remember?
A statue in the atrium
is dusty on top
because no one can reach that high
Some people still remember the name
