Robert Halleck


Today I try to remember
anything at all about him.

It gets very hard.

If only someone would say
"yes, you remind me of him."


You see them on the news,
the refugees.

Walking, stumbling
living in camps

No water
no toilets
no food

Bundles, they have bundles

What would I take
in my bundle?

I love the idea of memory being its own force, powerful and mobile.
