Do You Remember
Do you remember the force of my biceps
holding on hard to muscle it, helping me
tumbling into a future of strength. I made the
darkness as well as the light spilling from
water or just an old Starbucks cup.
There has been only a bit of spillage,
time against time that pits my speed.
Do you remember the city, the highway,
the apartments that ravage the wealth and
poverty, we made it into suburbs piped on the
tips of dreams. Tomorrow is but an appetizer
primed before the buffet. We'll skip the past
and fly, few allegiances attached.
Do you remember I never heard back from
you, the one who left me peacefully while I
slept, your promises turned into a old black
ladle of old fish soup... then I guess nothing
is ever boring for those with two brain cells
rubbing together. I won't condemn you, as
a priest balancing all the threads together.
