I Do Not Belong Here

Where is the place
where memories go to die?
The den of evocative trivialities
that we keep away from the light?
Where is this grand turret hiding?

I feel a supple belongingness
to this cradle of oblivious sighs,
and I do not only doubt my existence
but I feel in a crucial exactitude
that I am but a fleeting substance
of the sad, beautiful mind

I surrender, with both my hands down
and take refuge to where
the moths flourish their yarns
I will go now, if the road
can be taken because there is
nothing here for me
but a dreamy reality
that my assuaging hands
and my iron eyes
can never usurp

I do not belong here,
and towers and spires agree
I belong to the restless sunshine
of forgetting
