Day 30 -- Remember

A Valley, Somehow, A Kind of Cup

footbridge and 
                   bats feasting
                                  in his halo
                                          of night bugs
                                                      and sodium light
a small river slides sideways into a bigger one
            late peaches and no moon, long pulls
                                                              on green bottles
                                                                      on cups of grief

        how did our skin feel against that hot dark

    how did we manage breath
                                                   at all
            what kind of poem will this be   
when we have forgotten what we were?
