It was a moment that mattered

It was a moment that mattered
Shavings of an instant
Purchased at no small price

Kept away and hidden
From goblins of time that try
To "make the best" of every moment

Before the moment is
A haunted spiral, porous
Everywhere it does not count

Dubious revolutions
The turnings of the hours
When life's span slurps them

Momentous metamorphosis
When time's delay is everything
To a timely being

One moment enfolded
The mattering's gone
Maddening metempsychosis

Flattening layers of time
To the slit between eyelids
Suspended in blinking

Moment the erasure
Of time before and time after
Moment the sudden forgetfulness

Tied to flimsy posts
Of ingenious imagination
Thinking it is going somewhere.


  1. Love the “Flattening layers of time / To the slit between eyelids” Brilliant!
