This Restless Urge for a Photo Album

I already know I forget.
It’s not a foreign concept,
just a question of degree.

I hear
there are memory exercises.
They mostly involve using your memory,
but you’d be surprised—

surprise being
an especially effective register
of it being now,
and not, say, the now
of being looked at in a photo
through a loved one’s eyes.
