If the five senses were
to partner up in twos
i’m sure
we’d have to make
a sixth one so
touch wouldn’t be alone.

The final sense?
the one I use more oft than not
and yet
maybe too much
but how when it must pair with touch?

It cannot be off turned
even dreaming,
I have learned that
memories swim forever
never wrinkling (if they’re good)

So I walk back in time
watching everything in mime
growing smaller
oxy moron?
wait that doesn’t even

but the gates will close and

the guard will say
the only way
to bring this memory alive
is through one of
the original five.
