Afterthought 1628—and so, to where you are

Posted in nothing special by maggie on 2017/03/31

and so this is what it had to come to
me still writing stuff bent around you
from time to time, you already through
with me, and I won’t make it that far,
        to where you are

and so this is what it was said to mean:
me putting it out there where it’ll get seen
from time to time, for you already routine
to look away, and I won’t make it that far,
        to where you are

and so this is the hole to which we’ve crawled:
mine fooled as if once cast then so called
from time to time, yours off elsewhere sprawled
all left alone, and I won’t make it that far,
        to where you are

Afterthought 1563—One Prevailing Opinion

Tom Brady
throws like a lady.
He's rather over-inflated 
sans a ball under-rated.

Afterthought 1550—Minus One, Minus Another

Posted in nothing special by maggie on 2017/01/14

Time was known more by
what we didn't do
than by what we did.
It's the absent things we know,
minus one, minus another. 

We withheld pieces of ourselves,
expecting to do without.
We focused on the words not said,
leaving the others to catch up. 
We made love with the lights on,
ignoring the gods who call from dark.
All those tears we never had to cry,
minus one, minus another. 

We won't see everyone home,
we won't mark everything done,
we won't mention every casualty,
we won't spend every last cent.
Minus one, minus another,
minus one, minus another,
minus one, minus another,
we will be at our best 
with all we weren't.
