evening thoughts on a train



unpleasantness
I have tricked myself
with false belief
I have been
its architect

and
time does have its
tricks
and
memory

slips slides
forwards
inwards
backwards

two unsteady fingertips
riding
a
planchette

present-past
become
one tense

out of
order dinner courses
served sloppily
on the plate

not given
proper order but
perhaps weight

the dessert
is eaten first
with the least
pleasant course consumed
last

unless the
predilection
is for the
unappetizing
repast

truth

would I rather sip
through time
a sweet vermouth
and be drunk
on the best
of times

or do I desire a
binge of memory
letting its deluge
drown me?

do I retain the hope
do I know how
to swim?
