Even Elephants Forget Their Birth

Why are we denied memory from the first two years of our lives?

My friend, Evan can’t even remember yesterday.

What’s your earliest memory?

Mine is meeting my friend, Evan when I was two

I remember this because I have practiced this

memory since Evan and I are still friends.

Baby photos discover what we’ve lost

so when will we discover what we’ve found?

It’s like discovering a black hole

and even if we outlast infinity

we’ll still be waiting

and wanting something more
