  • Understanding Why Time Seems To Repeat Itself

    time truly does work in circles
    rotating on its own axis
    fluid solar wind memories
    carrying graphite pieces of amorphous rock
    shape to the craters my tears bend into the solid ground
    acting more like plasma.
    Time screeches and laughs at itself,
    bends its back to replay itself vainly
    as if on camera,
    laughs at me.
    It’s hard not to try to grab the sides of the slide
    as you slither away from solidity with a splash.
    You forget what its like to understand time
    as a constant,
    time as a fact.
    Time is a joker.
    The trick is on you.
    It catches you when you’re not looking;
    you thought you picked a new card.
    Jokes on you, fools,
    it’s the same card as before.
    Time caught a sneak peek,
    giggled and returned it
    you unknowingly looked forward to a future of a new hand,
    new possibilities to win at the game of life.
    But, time.
    They say it waits for no man,
    but it sure likes to wait for itself.
    As a ghost,
    it likes to watch
    its tail’s backlash
    it whips to the front
    a heavy gown.
    An evil ghost queen,
    I would have imagined by nemesis to be as a child
    but in fact
    it is time
    haunts me
    laughs in my face
    holds me captive from moving on.
