It Will Leave by Casey Fuller

when you are gone
and what you recall

about where you’ve been
and who you’re with

will close down
from the full size of

your sight
to a small circle

pushed by a pin
and for one brief second

before it changes
in the light still yellowing

through a single hole
every last thing

will be remembered.
