I Remember

I remember art deco things,
  I remember peaches and wine

I remember sirens in the night,
  I remember waving goodbye

I remember the boardwalk on a cloudy day,
  I remember an elephant in pink

I remember the fire engine returning
  I remember my father—I think

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2017)
