I Banish Memory


you are a habit
that grounds and soothes
you are
a habit

you are a habit
that hounds and destroys
you are
a habit

not human but you have
a life
a lie
you are a flame within
you prick
like a pin
and sicken
as sin
memory

memory
take back your teeth

memory
curb your sweet

memory
lessen your pull
lest I be pulled away
 
once you start in
I forget who I am
and where I begin

you take over
like a tyrant
make your essence giant

memory
go away
I banish you

but you speak
not so silently
will I listen
blindly

you hiss:
"only for this moment."
