Today is dead but the day is not lost

by Gavin Lytton

he left a note now smeared in blood,
smelling of wounds and memories of wounded
becoming Yesterday.
there’s a certain honour in that.
becoming forgotten, he
is a bare headstone
existing and crooked,
reading, ‘the other day.’

The Future pulls at her skirt baring
such sweet, young skin
saying, ‘someday.’
Tomorrow comes too quickly
and never.
