El Parque

The park

Calls out to me to be remembered, to not be forgotten


I forget a lot of things

The smell of coffee in the morning

The toast in the toaster

The cheese toasting on top


Sometimes I need things to call out to me

To remind me


The park reaches out its branches,

Its path rolling into the street

Flowing into my front steps

Asking me to remember
