Probably I knew the kings and knights

Probably I knew the kings and knights,
the battle door, the barge and their boat builders,
and knew they had a country, from the bridge,
the carpenters too, and workers in wood.

The writer has no memory,
nothing to remember having written,
nothing from school, not what is a verb or a noun.
Just movement, if he can,
to show them right
while the rest of life is going on.
