two-thirds of the way

two-thirds of the way
filling out forms that bestow
legitimacy,

an in-between version of you
sidesteps the absurdity

at the third narrow,

at the third narrow,
turn left to broaden, then left
again to narrow –

life offers us only these
directions, we lose our way

looks like a lock, a light,
a crude litmus test

most have-nots are not

most have-nots are not
about the things or even

days before the new

days before the new
year, old
memories stumble
upon even older
memories, overlap,
wrinkle, uninvited.

and not resisting
is the acceptance
that they will arise
fewer and farther
between in the
years to come.
let them
kaleidoscope in
remembrance of us
