Hexagonal Variations on a Circular Thought part 2 – The Consideration


This now hasn’t happened, yet

the memories are fading.


Consider the fluidity,

the ebb & flow of

time/memories, interwoven,

if you pull at one the other falls &

though the linear concept of time carries no weight in my mind,

the persistence of memory burns its images into a history

that’s left wanting to conform with a calendar &

forced to comply with the old man’s calculations.
