SHOULD OLD ACQUAINTANCE
(1/2/15)


the calendar
says new

but the world
and we
remain
very much
the same

a differing
day
presenting
the thinnest veneer
of progress

of digression

a superficial
trick of numbers
to give some
new hope

to doom
others
to their last
year here

yesterday
imagined
into memory

tomorrow
chanced
into a dream

we stare
at our hands

our feet

and wonder
to when
they belong
