How do I decide what to remember –
what to forget?
I don’t spend much time pondering this phenomenon –
it just happens somewhere in my mind
where selections are taking place
with, and sometimes without my choosing.
If I did have more authority in these matters
I might decide quite differently
than I do by my remaining silent.
This process which I don’t especially understand
is, nevertheless one that I admire.
Were it different then I would be, too.
