Erase (NaPoWriMo #11)

Is it movie cliché
that brains remember who we loved before war
post-war
prior to alien invasion?

Or is this fact
what we’ll face in 2064, 3018, when the world
Earth
is no longer ours?

Tom’s who you’d pick to convince
he was it, forgot
when they wiped every memory
with purse-size sanitizer

and any dream with a face like yours in it
he has
is epiphany
premonition

and in a past-life or this one
just, like, decades ago
you were together

and if he’d re-ring it
put another on it
you’d save the world and shit.
