Should I Lose My Memory


by Goirick Brahmachari

Should I lose my memory
Let it come back to me in nonlinear

April has gone missing, September is dry
December asks questions in nonlinear

Wake up to punishments, sleep
Through class—that seems much easier

Now there are no rivers, there are no skies
Only this life that is linear

This city has wearied, the travelers are gone
Memory, come back to me in nonlinear
