Not Bringing Souvenirs

Not Bringing Souvenirs
by Don Schaeffer

Although she remains
as a small changing wavelet
through which the particles pass,

everything around her
flows away, all the
material nuggets.

I can't bring
tokens of a home
she can't connect again.

Even the molecules of
her lifetime
