from the lost

from the lost

me, i still
dream of you –
time is a flexible

bread crumbs
where only
the subconscious
can follow

the body launches

the body launches
into tomorrow and never
for once looks back.
the mind fidgets with
purpose, extending long
fingers into those lost
hours, marking an X
with a thumbnail
on the moments
that still itch

in adho mukha

on the one hand, the

on the one hand, the
body is still

the mind levels up –
running towards
or away always
leads back home

jokes the mind
knows nothing
about – you are
welcome to laugh
it right off, no
one is ever
really listening

out of ten, they
advise you to

flow, yield
to prevent more
injury –
we are all
doing the best
we can

i am always looking
at you as if for the
first time, tightening
the mind traps
along the trail, all
the better to
remember you
with, my dear
