Default History If Such a Bold Abstract Term Can Be Used

drops of blood
dry like rain
are soon forgotten
the slight indentations in the sand
gone

history leaves traces
but they are microscopic

we are comforted by our loss of memory

in the sands of time
everything exists
and vanishes
between the bits
of microscopic grit

it's all there
invisible to those who dare not look
but there for the finding
