Memories are not unlike incisors

Yes, you’ve forgotten where your
Dormant sands quake that
Lead to an arrest of persuasion,
But you did not forget her teeth
Nibbling at your courage
Like the depths of father’s
Alcoholism and stolen guilt.
What you do recall
Is the only moment you were alone
Together, and she smiled, and insisted
You do, to the place of factory
Workshops where her incisors did breed.
