The Memories Must Be Laid Down Straight

By Ann-Marie Clark (Contributing Writer) 

girl with braid

The memories must be laid down straight;

The tangles must be combed through.

GENTLY!

                Then combed,

and combed

again and again,

and again and again,

and still again.

Then a design must be

Fashioned in my imagination

of  whatever can be done

with all this information

to    overflowin

out of my head.

So I begin to represent

memories

in words

strung together like beads,

then woven into a braid

of intricate design,

strong enough

to withstand

criticisms

to come.
