TIME – VI

 

 

 

 

TIME – VI

 

The Paz   books arrive on time
detox on   the table
oh you still   do that yes
I do that   still.

These we   don’t talk about
immaterial   material things
grounding   diminishing things
exalting   humbling things

Washing   clothes by hand in a basin
time lost   time frozen drowning
chaos   without time
no living   timelines.

Time to   repack summer
unpack   cold weather
clothes   buried deep in
another   time.

Trip cancelled   fourth time
temperatures   urgently demanding
access to the   right clothes
for that broken   season

Now for this one
cycling im·per·cep·ti·bly around
to what could be recognized as
fall.
