sometimes, yesterday

sometimes, yesterday
and today will no longer
have anything in

common – we adjust the volume
of our voices to be heard

morning flight, homebound,

distancing before

distancing before
the distance appears normal,
as if yesterday

were the same as tomorrow,
hearts were not warming up to molt

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

yesterday’s bite is

yesterday’s bite is
today’s festering – don’t bite off
more than you can chew

yesterday’s words

yesterday’s words
suddenly pounded
on the wall between
us, knocking down
that old picture
of tomorrow

yesterday stretches

yesterday stretches
my heart to a more
pliable emblem.
today fills it with
swollen things

we fall into reptile

we fall into reptile
precision
when it comes
to what we say and
what we keep
stranded
in our throats.
i have long
stopped
marking the way
back
to yesterday’s
tomorrow –
but we will
drag it out
until recognition
is just a word
left unsaid
.
