Yesterday’s tomorrows

by Dieu

Present lovers will become

tomorrow’s lingering memories.

Like children born from the womb,

they enter our lives from the

ether of the universe

as possibilities.

A remembered enigmatic


a smell,

the first hello,

and then the exit.

One day while cleaning

your closet,

you think you

can smell him

-his smell (like a sweet musk),

the heart’s memory which

cannot forget.
