from winter to spring,

summer to fall – where the mind
drops you, from 0 to 60

moments can easily
be frozen, doctored
with the practiced

memory, and
still, reveal nothing

me, i still
dream of you –
time is a flexible
thing, leaving
bread crumbs
where only
the subconscious
can follow

into tomorrow and never
for once looks back.
the mind fidgets with
purpose, extending long

on the moments
that still itch

running towards
or away always
leads back home

jokes the mind
knows nothing

welcome to laugh

one is ever
really listening
