II THE CONSIDERATION
This now hasn’t happened, yet
the memories are fading.
Consider the fluidity,
the ebb & flow of
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.
