HISTORY

 

History

A synonym for

Cracked vinyl

Missing zipper teeth

Baggage

Some shininess

Like holiday eves

Love, though, a masquerade

Really only lust

A virgin’s veil

Hiding the truth

All against a sweeping

World affairs backdrop

To anchor memories

 

In contrast

Tabula Rasa relationships

Have their own amnesia

Fresh start on a clean slate

To sketch new memories

If there is still time

And great maturity

Baggage-free

 

Or, we can pick up the charcoal

And let the ghosts control us

Midnight automatic writings

Repeating

Endlessly

Infinite, identical

History…
