Memories of sea
now have another master―
pearl necklace pawned

Clelia Ifrim
Bucharest, Romania

■The phrase memories of sea is beautiful. I think it means the author's memories and the pearl's. The pearl necklace that is memories both of her and sea have to have another master- pawnbroker. Did he feel guilty at robbing her of the treasure called memories?
