the memories

they lined them up in rows
for us to see

we’d stand
at the top of a hill
squatting into the sun
an pointing

“That one there.”
hoping to make out the difference
as though that was the point
in a sea of imitation and likeness
we sought out our own
very best
version

and we hadn’t found it yet
