The tide slips backwards.
Ripples circle inwards.
Memory is shifting.
I’m peddling a little red car.
Photos on the wall.
Music is playing on the tape recorder.
The noise of a party.
Voices I once knew.

The river flows away.
The rain falls upwards.
The room once warm is now cold.
Childhood toys that haven’t yet been sold,
Are scattered on the floor.
The sun rises and glistens.
Through the living room window.
My father sits in his chair.

The tears flow upwards.
The sink fills downwards.
The cat once found is lost.
He watches from behind sweet peas.
Drinks are poured into green glasses.
There is laughter.
I listen from my upstairs room.
Before venturing down.

August becomes July.
The clock chimes five then four.
The shed is a greenhouse once more.
We sit on the bench.
The fence comes down.
The large room becomes two.
There is laughter again,
But I’m not there.

Old grows young.
The puddle sinks upwards.
The beach once full
Is now empty.
The dog won’t cross the bridge.
So we have to pick her up.
I remember this beach.
I should never have come back.

The robins disappear.
The sun rises from the west.
My mother is bathing me
In a yellow bath
On a metal frame.
I hold on to the sides
And I won’t let go
I won’t let go.
