You always thought
time would be enough
in the days remaining,
so you always thought,
when you would stand again
in a familiar spot, and recover
your runaway life in ways
you always thought.
But time gives you the slip,
as does the familiar spot,
to spite old memory,
as if you forgot
in the meantime what
you always thought.
