Personal History

For a moment
just pretend

that I could roll a roll of film
from your bare shoulder
down your arm
to the tips of your fingers
and everything you’ve ever touched
would be waiting there to see

would you say to me,
“There’s a one-hour place
down in Olde City.’

or would you say,
“I’d greatly prefer it
if that were burned –
like, immediately.”
