Yesterday, Meet Forever

Yesterday, Meet Forever

written by: Steven Fortune

 

Yesterday
meet forever at the intersection
of maligned memorials and
giddy recollections
where the crosswalks are painted with
powder blue clouds
and the traffic lights sigh
through the tourniquet of time’s stiff
authoritative engineering
Pay no heed to the commuters
scrutinizing your encounter as
a vacation from their own predestinations
See the paradox through
not through it
That’s when the brass-knuckled knock of
death is free to floor the golden door of
closure
and the doors of perception die dirty
and finite
Disregard the glares of the commuters
in their waterproof couture of circumstance
Encounter and acquaint and let the memories
access expressions in the bank of ruminations
asking to be robbed
Eventually the topic of today
will impound the apathy of already dead
thresholds
