“Water Memory:
the purported ability of water
to retain a memory of substances
previously dissolved in it even after
an arbitrary number of serial dilutions.”

Under a microscope, your cells
possess every storm that you have faced,
the remains of each war you’ve won
and the means to conquer another; 

You are made from snowflakes—
each that has fallen upon your tongue
carries the river it once bubbled along,
the tear that was once wiped away,
the life that it once saved.

You are a blizzard of the things
that failed to drown you;

Your flurry is the only White Christmas
that even Mother Nature cannot deny.
