april 30th, 2020 - part ii - the timeline

time is starting
to move normally again.

during the Before--
when the world still
made sense--
your thoughts would
never linger
on time’s passage.
you would never regret
the moving of
the second hand.
you would be surprised
when you checked the
computer screen
and saw it was already 11:14.

(wasn’t it just barely 10?)

we can’t return
to the Before.
time is linear
and we can only
go forward.

but we can still
find comfort
in the constant passage
of time.
