 Smoke And Mirrors



______  
              ______________


Once intact, bits and pieces
All tattered and torn
The debris slowly increases
Blowing down the back roads
Shiny tinsel thought-dreams
From the day I was born....

                      

______  
              ______________
            
Things that once mattered
Now impossible to recall
By whirlwind scattered
Caught up in the wind
Now dim in the distance
Once chiseled into the wall....



______  
              ______________

Where did the yesterdays go,
When I could entertain caprices?
Now my thoughts ebb and flow
All haziness, smoke and mirrors,
Tunnels and misty mazes
Until this old life mercifully ceases

How do I reconnect the bits and pieces?
