Cucumbers and Pasta

Cucumbers and Pasta

There is no permanence to our parting

Of course, peeling a cucumber doesn’t mean
it was never green

I still know that pasta comes from loving hands
as well as – no, better than – from any box

I can walk into a mom and pop deli
and be back in 1961

Now, impermanence lies in failing neurons,
ever faulty to begin with, losing track of memories

For you, cucumbers and pasta are my remedy


We never really have any choice over memories and their association.
