like a tongue returning

like the tongue

to an aching tooth

returning to places

from a time before

here we did this

there I did that

& not all those are good things

though not all of them bad

either

but like a tongue returning

to a bad tooth

I flick back

visiting places times

holding meaning

past experiences

knowing there can be

will be

no healing

until all purpose has been

extracted
