Remembering by Joshua Nkwana

Poem

For one to speak of remembering
Is to say
unveil the wounds
or bring an old good memory alive

But for you to know that
human brains are skies
folding clouds in all forms
Of ugliness, of beauty

Is as close as to understand that
you cannot ask the sky of how much it lost or gained
in a short time
or ages

Because skies are like valleys
They’re beholders of moisture
and drought
They don’t hold things for so long
