Shoe-worn Paths

I’ve walked the highways
on your face,
the shoe-worn paths
spidering your cheeks,
wrinkling your smile.
The criss-cross tributaries
carry your memories
like ships carry cargo,
and I wonder
if we all wear our walks
on our faces
like you do
or if some hide their lives
in their eyes
or under their fingernails,
if some carry their memories
in bags instead of bones.
