Days that cannot bring you near
Or will not,
Distance trying to appear
Something more obstinate,
Argue argue argue with me
Neither proving you less wanted nor less dear.
Distance: Remember all that land
Beneath the plane;
Of dim beaches deep in sand
All the way,
All the way to where my reasons end?
Days: And think
Of all those cluttered instruments,
One to a fact,
Canceling each other’s experience;
How they were
Like some hideous calendar
“Compliments of Never & Forever, Inc.”
The intimidating sound
Of these voices
We must separately find
Can and shall be vanquished:
Days and Distance disarrayed again
Both for good and from the gentle battleground.
