Not Always Apparent

We collect moments like we do
postage stamps, scars
and shadows. Value is
                       incomprehensible,
the results not always apparent.
The effort, or conclusion,
                           is immeasurable.
            Our museum grows
in proportion to our ability
to understand what
we have gained and
all that has been misplaced.
                           What is missing?
We curate the exhibit
in perpetuity.
                  Are we ever the wiser?
