A YEAR AGO YESTERDAY
(11/27/18)


we obsess
with dates

holidays

birthdays

anniversaries

as if
some magical
mark
upon the calendar
of our make believe
will reveal
some meaning

declare
some relevance
for us

but
just because
the earth returns
to some relative
position
in regards
to the sun

the sun
has moved
on

that past
point
in space
has been passed
irrevocably

never again
to be
revisited

look
up
from your
schedules

don't lose
today
in remembrance
