Day 21: "What We Own"
Today's tour poem, by Philip Terman, puts ownership in perspective. Mourning a dead brother, the speaker remembers not physical possessions so much as slices of life. As flesh and blood are taken away and even if memory later fades, those moments will always have been fully lived, owned. Also, thanks to the poem, they are immortalized. —Gerald So
