I take my memories,

Make them mine.

Fill in every spot of fuzz,

Make them fine.

 

I’ve one – I’m young – unclear –

An object colored red

Silent in blank stuff detached.

Dissatisfied, I spread

 

The red around a fragile frame,

Over, thin cloth drape

To give the shade dimension

The object, give it shape.

 

The fuzzy image populates

As each aspect shifts

I pick and point and recreate

Delete, erase, and sift.

 

I have a proper memory

All the doing done

Of sending up my crimson kite

Although I never flew one.
