let us not forget

let us not forget
this feeling, even when we
have not quite
identified it – a gelatinous
persuasion of guilt
if you do and
guilt if you don’t –
stuck treading
words that have been
said, flutter kicking
into words that have
been left unsaid

into conversation,
it gets harder
to catch ourselves
and each other
mid-flight

we are seemingly
always pressed
for time – lunch and
conversations
tamely
cater to the second-
hand, while each
minute washes
down your
words whole
