Memory

memory
I memorized
your smile.

I can find it
when I dream.

The wrinkle of lip,
scar of dimple,
crack of tooth.

I know it when
I need it most.

I memorized
the angles of
your face.

Every 90 degree
cut across bone,
the soft roll
of forehead.

I count each
crease embedded.
Every freckle, scar,
squint of eye.

I memorized
the best part
of you.
I can conjure
it when I close
my eyes.

I know these
parts in your
absence. It
eases my mind.
