Poetry

Insignificant

 

Insignificant

Otherwise
reduced overĀ a slow boil
of the absolution of selfhood
dismayed at the notion
of settling down at a moment
of time viewed as insurance
printed out in metered lines
the poetry of redemption
neatness pictured as
vague as an excuse
muttered and forgotten
as one who remembers
all you are to me
is what was
before I remembered
you again
time is like that
like you
like me
gone
