These Memories are a Pavement by John Tustin

These memories are a pavement
Going on uninterrupted for miles,
Wet with the rain, beautiful from
Afar and slippery when trodden.
They are where I slip and fall each
Night and where I awaken each
Morning, getting myself up and
Continuing to walk this sidewalk
That goes on and on yet leads me
Nowhere but back to us and, as
We know, us is not something we
Have
Anymore.
I think about that tonight as I walk.
