Spring rolls at the Science Museum

Insipred by Gayle Chong Kwan’s Manipulated Memory Tasting Booth at ‘The Science of Food,’ one of the Science Museum’s ‘Lates’ evenings.

Spring rolls at the Science Museum

We sit
Side by side on a bench
At the Science Museum
Eating spring rolls

I recall Chinese takeaways and
Picking the prawns out of my special fried rice
You comment that this will be a new memory, in time
I hadn’t thought of that

The next time
l have a spring roll
I wonder whether I’ll recall
Childhood memories or
Sitting next to you
At the Science Museum
Talking about remembering now.
