a promise.






it is not a wonder, you
ceased hearing
the sweeping hush of green boughs
outside the window

as the cities
and faces click by, you
lurch toward the guard rails
press against a bitter wind,
wish to rest your eyes

you visualize the frayed edges
of this mislaid joy, the time
when you could bend down
and lift promises to your chest

it is not a wonder, in this
world you molded,
the perspective to lose
has been lost
in the continuum
