The List 3



Life is for the making
of lists of lists.
Or for not doing that,
for learning to forget.
Everything old must go,
but not all at once.
Everything new must come,
but not all at once.
Everything we see
is added to a list.
Everything we look for but don't find
is added to a list.
The list of everything we've forgotten
is the last list on the last list of lists.
