It pierced the part of the brain that
nurtures memory-
and shattered it into a thousand
shards-
through it went-
cradled in summer’s end-
moments evaporating under the
fierce velocity-
flecks of yesterday soaring like
doves-
out if it crept a cryptic entity-
secretive,
and cunning-
cloaked in familiar skin-
and when he smiled,
you would recognize him-
out of it came an entity intent
on living-
regardless of the fate of his
predecessor-
where he failed, the new creation
prospered-
until the originator was swallowed
by the shadow and thrust into a
darkened pool-
his thoughts scattered into a thousand
shards-
his memories evaporated like
flecks of yesterday, soaring like doves
through cobwebbed trees*
