Before We Remembered

Not a moment or moments
moving through us
at the speed of light, 

not coincidence
or souvenir

but a series of 
unrelated events, 

a strange set of
disconnected marks,

what makes a body float
in salt-dense water,

the lifeless with their
absolute lack of use

for oxygen or tears

makes us surprisingly

there is no cure.

After worry, before
the terrible consummation
of inner darkness

small dots of puzzle
created to create a sense
of reassurance

instantly disappear.
