Keeping track of the past


Keeping track of the past

I keep restaurant bills and
            museum and cinema tickets
as markers in the books I read
            I know that on February 10th
2017 we visited the Guggenheim
            on that magical trip to Venice

Peggy Guggenheim who collected
            artists and writers and paintings
: and we who held our own
            special collections of words
to describe who we were as walkers
            and talkers and so much more
So I always know where we once were
            but I’m not so sure where you are now
