Mathematics

Mathematics
was never my strongest suit
but
I have figured something out
because of repeated losses …
my memory is over stimulated
on birthdays
and anniversaries (public and private ones)
locations visited
… now without you
treasures stumbled upon
that still hold your scent
and give rise to
the sound of your voice
that
has not yet faded from my mind,
moments of the past,
our past,
spooling out in a continuous loop
like a never-ending film reel
so
you
see …

the probability is
high
that I will remember
you
on more than one day
out of the whole year.
