Five-Minute Memories

Five-minute memories

#reverb 10  Day 15

You only have 5 minutes to recall memories from last year before your memory goes-do so-now.

The year: snowflakes in hair,
wrong paths, fur coat, Toledo station,
Aldeburgh, starburst rockets,
black sky, black sea.
Word! My son, smiling,
making jokes, Gaughin’s
surprising early paintings
in Tate Modern. Unexpected
Weather, collection by Abi
Curtis but a metaphor too.
More art than you can
throw a stick at. Poems,
written around a long table
at Lumb Bank. Roy Fisher
at Beeston, strong warm clasp
of his hand. Being wanted.
