focus

February 22, 2017

how did we get here?
step by step
how will we move on?
the same

it’s funny how
old photographs
go out of focus

what is it that
encourages us to
filter the colours
of past images
with innocence?

perhaps because
the hopelessness
of predicting what is to come
is so clear on our
younger faces

perhaps because
the silent tragedy
of the full story
is only hinted at
in the margins

perhaps because
the quaint, magic inventions
of the past
are not the time machines
we thought they would be

everything has been promised
primrosed,
primed, poised and rosied,
but everything is so far from understood

how did we get here?
step by step
how will we move on?
the same
