I feel there are things I am on the verge of forgetting
things my brain has summarized
but in a way that misses their critical distinctions
purposefully, in favor of an easy slotting into a known cubby where weakened strains are punching bags for a psychic immunity
that fiercely maintains its perimeters
I need to brush back against them in their native fauna
to repopulate my neural diversity

It is difficult to retain what you have learned unless you practice it.
