Memory foam

I wonder if memory pillows hold grudges 

how they hold lipstick kisses  and mascara smudges 

A spray of perfume 

And a splash of cologne 

A mixture

In A Fixture

Of rectangular 

foam
I wonder if memory pillows remember

The night before Christmas that felt like forever

The nervous and anxious before the big test

Tummy aches

Wide awake

When you just

need some rest
I wonder if memory pillows remember

More than the weight and the shape and the contour

Creating a sanctuary that just seems

To shield from the nightmares 

And nurture the dreams
