Memory Smiles

It sneaks up on you
On cat feet
And knocks you into
Next week.
Melody drifts on
The air and
Swims into your ear,
Its way into
Your heart,
Making itself cozy
In the armchair
Of your chest.
Memory smiles
And sinks its teeth into
Your center and
Takes a bite.
Little nibbles,
Memory chews at
Your now
Until you don’t
Know how you ended up
In a present that
Blurs the lines
Between want
And necessity.
