I am the Houdini of memory
I bear the iron impossibility of escape
Because memory pulls you down deep into the sea, chains tight & dragging you
But the key, the metal in the back of my mouth, is forgetfulness
One day I may choke on it & die
Not from the failure to escape

But from the knowledge that trying to makes me a fraud
