Day 63 – Fossil Pieces

your inaccurate memory lives
in the haunted part of me
where all the fossil pieces lie
though I never put them there
back then I wasn’t very good at
cataloguing people so
you got a better rub than you deserved
and now you shine among the sediment
half-buried, half-awake and fighting
begging me to see you for
all the things you never were
and we go fishing in my dreams
but there’s a monster in the water and
I only want to climb inside its bones
and sink with you
