REMEMBER

remember all doors are trap doors, and our fires
should be barely more than sticks. We must remember
remembering is always futuristic.

~from “Post-Apocalyptic” by Stacia M. Fleegal

All doors are trap doors.
Some lead to destinations,
others to other trap doors.
A mind’s cavernous hollow
lets you follow where knowledge
and memory lead. Knowing bears
a confidence to pursue. Memory
plays in a constant loop
revisiting that which we have left
behind or forgotten. Yet, ignoring
the past becomes a destiny to repeat it;
a step forward from where recollection
is buried. Step away from the past,
remembering is always futuristic.

    This is very interesting. I need to think about this, to decide whether or not I agree.

    “A mind’s cavernous hollow
    lets you follow where knowledge
    and memory lead.” … I like this sentence, especially the hollow/follow rhyme.

    “Yet, ignoring
    the past becomes a destiny to repeat it” … Hmmm. I hadn’t thought about it that way. You make a compelling argument.
