Late Night Poetry; “Memory Loss.”

Photos on a bulletin board
how do the pins hold up?
Push pins aren’t permanent
like the switch of a lamp
off it goes under the shade
shade in your mind
because you worry.
But pull the pin out
you know you have to eventually.
The memories grow old
and they become soggy
and they become heavy
and they become less.
