perhaps months,

perhaps months,
years from now, these
days will become
foggy, it’s how our
minds insist on
playing games with
our hearts – now you see

to make out every
fine detail in the
heightened haze

there are at least four

there are at least four
hundred and twenty-

accidental shuffles, one-

rehearses silently, confined
to a losing history

that can only reside in the
past, it’s safe to explore
every reimagining
