ABSENTEE NOTE

 

MAY 2018

 

Somewhat of a triumph amist ongoing hysteria,

Derailed by positives, impeached by progress,

Deathly noons: please meet me in groundhog cafes,

Drag me kicking and screaming into that

Crying Wednesday, and accept this absentee note as evidence.

I remember the last year like it was the last year

But I remember five years ago like it was the today itself.

Explanation: death in reverse,

Ash on that young phoenix babe, yeah go do it, cos there’s too many abrupt feelings ‘round here,

Too much unnecessary ceremony -

All bow down to the pitch perfect articulation of being better tomorrow
