Strong Shape. 2020
“What will our memories of lockdown be?”
Headline from The Guardian, Sun 19 Apr 2020
What will our memories be.
Imagine the future of your memories.
Picture your memories as you imagine yourself in the future.
In the future you will have memories. What will they be.
Picture yourself as you remember your memories in the future,
and think about what those memories will look like.
In the future you will experience memories.
But you will have to imagine them.
Chaffinch rain call.
These are memories from a previous future.
During lockdown I am remembering memories
and imagining myself remembering
the being of what they are.
I imagine myself in your memories.
The edges of my strong shape
brushed into a brittle, silent equation.
