Yesterday and one day less

The tears choke waves 

undulating through the desert,

To dried wells 

buried beneath the colosseum; 

Somewhere I believe 

Between shadows looming

and dreams pinned 

on the board of summer wind

and frosted pine broken by the eaves

of frozen creeks and sagebrush dusted meadows, 

Driving somewhere I believe; 

Heart lead pulsing just barely, 

Head pounding as I’m pulled

pushed, shoved under

all the fleeting stars

that bled shorter than I do, 

More gentle than I

pearled on the sunset 

tomorrow and one day more

Yesterday and one day less;

And nothing will ever be

as warm as you

Or ever be you when

you’re gone
