as each person
passes me i obtain
another piece of memory
to put in my velvet case

i will never know
any name but
i will hold one
just one memory of theirs
a lover's kiss
a dying world
a passing thought
a long-forgotten promise

and i will stitch
together all these pieces
from there my quilt
will tell every story
