if i look back
regret still waits there

with its dark yowling hungry mouth

abysmal gorgon stone transfixing paralysing saltbound breath

the past is ruined now
ravaged by understanding

the light of all those painful conversations casts its dark
and i can't see the landscape any more

I do not know it
do not recognise and
cannot own it

where is there to stand
except the present?

nowhere else to look but forward
