LIVING IN THE PAST
(1/31/15)


the cosmic
anomalies
are easier
to digest

stars
that we watch
with wonder
so bright
in the sky
may have been
dead
for millions
of years

those tricky
light years

it's a bit more
difficult
to bring
the concept
down
to the horizon

down
the block

to the palm
of your
hand

there's always
the dreaded
thirtieth of a second
delay
between any
sensation
and the sensory
realization
by the brain

we react
to phantoms
and shadows

to things
that were

lost forever
in yesterday

we have
no hope
to truly prepare
for tomorrow
