i have caused harm
it won't be the last time i hurt someone
i can't change the past
but in the present moment i can better act
i am more than what you see on the outside, i lie
it is not that i am not trying not to hide proof
prod and poke indecision leaves my headroom ungroomed
pick a spot to untangle in my mind the knots

distant echoes of yesterday's waves sud and splash
as i scrub and scrub the stained pains
in the old kitchen we once shared, her recipes
i borrowed, while she would prance unaware around the isle
still got them

mornings a seagulls soars back and forth around my headspace
my noon i sight a swan on the pond's horizon and by moonlight she's perdu
landlocked, beneath the seat there's a leak in my canoe
i don't know what to do

for months i've survived in hinterland
the port is broken, ze cook relinquished
can't keep this pace of consumption
but i dally, stall, and wait
tomorrow will be the day

henceforth i'm averting my eyes forward
but each week tomorrow stumbles ever closer
to my periphery, am i just forgetting
the urn of yesterday's ashes as all the feathers
gruesomely burned

is this about drifting friends from high school
is this about those you were close to
is this about someone you once knew
is this an idea you've constructed out of thin air
