The Persistence of Memory

The way lamb sticks in your teeth

The way pain lingers long after an injury

How a song can resurrect like Lazarus

A funny gesture like a stuck-out tongue

Brings back an unrequited love

A yellowed patch of newspaper

Recalls a friend who is far away

Handwritten ink on a birthday envelope

Is the legacy of a loving grandmother

Or a flower your mother pressed

Between the pages of a voluble text

Dali's "Persistence of Memory"
