Jen taking the salad out of the refrigerator

she bends at the knees
into the open fridge
talks to me
about events of the day
her hair
falls forward
her face
faces me
even as her hand
reaches into
the refrigerator’s light
catches her

and this frozen moment
reminds me
of all the reasons why
and isn’t it just like the mind
that it takes a shard
to capture the whole

all the years
all the moments
that blend
and are forgotten
until a moment such as this
when she leans into a fridge

and I remember
but not everything
just the essence

the way a smell
can capture all
when in reality
it is but a part
