NaPoWriMo 2017, Day 26: A Future Archaeologist Examines an Object

 

The Memory Contained in Some Objects

But the memory contained in some objects
will never be enough to visualize the elephants, say,
or the icebergs they danced on for money.
What will remain to tell of innumerable coral reef
circuses, how we applauded each morning
at the walking spectacle we lived in, without knowing?

 

Not really from a prompt at NaPoWriMo.net.
