Past

The past arrives,
like four o’clock
in the morning

It presses you
with insights,
but on waking,
in daylight
there are only
fuzzy dream-like edges

It is a spiral
all that is unresolved,
returns
to be dealt with
once again
faces change,
faces forgotten
but the theme remains

Until finally
the story
has changed
the shape of your bones
