449: Replacement

I will replace you.

Not with permanence, or forever, or things that last.

I will replace you minute by minute, memory by memory.

You will drown under the new, the temporary, the scent of new.

I will replace what you were

with what is now.

I will remove you piece by tiny piece,

scrap by scrap,

inch by throbbing inch.

You will be no more and I

I

I will replace you.
