Missed Miles

Travel catch-up
France fries
China frails
Ireland fleets
Norway wavers 
Korea warns
Antarctica whelms

Yesterdays of anytime
Desire returned
Ache in the plane seat
Fatigue flying time zones
Day after before now when
If here today there night is day then
Every day’s a yesterday
Every night’s a yesternight
And tomorrow’s . . .

Stiff walk and creek
Blurry ooh scenes ahh them
People I may and might have met
Gravestones glistening in rain’s soft fall
Falling softly
Read a poem
Write a poem
A prayer for one tomorrow

Examine my hands, weigh time in them
See it isn’t there, lost all along the way
