a moment of memory

that moment
that was
nothing
abuts against
a moment
that was nothing
for an instant
touching
another moment
that equals nothing
at all

how long
can these nothings last

will
a moment
plus a moment
plus a moment
make sixty seconds
or a minute

how many does it take
to make
one hour
of this day

how many
to make and keep
a memory

one that endures beyond
a moment
that
is nothing
