The Whole Damn Tape

The Whole Damn Tape

Moth I let you out
and you fly right back in

I wring my memory
to see when I told you about
this household being moth-friendly

Oh for the days when rewinding
made a sound
the longest zipper unzipping
a bee against a screen

I find the scene I need at the beginning of the tape
Scene one: I hold open the door
to the night air

And in the second scene
there’s that window
that will not close

Scene five
Scene twelve
Scene thirty-eight

The tape is labeled
Moth Home Movies
