to make: to remake: to remember

the other life lived, other story told, other memory remembered
cracks in the telling, marked and stained, secrets, memories
remade objects, the everyday, marked by experience
the other, inserted, retold in the remaking
words disrupted, seams distancing past from present
becoming integral to the recollection
fragility, integrity exploited
instruments of beauty, violated

patterns for life, instructions for living
written down, so as not to forget
