Time Accelerating

Time Accelerating
(dedicated to Helena)

My Monday and Friday with all of space in between,
I feel the same as then, when presently, my mother,
elbows on the table, was exclaiming “72? so young
for the obituaries” and my click of tongue, so so old,
more life than I can imagine, me 18 and it taking forever
for the first kiss I’d get at 20, all my friends blushed with theirs,
my Monday and Friday with all of space in between,
and presently me, 78 so soon, me to turn the age of Balthazar,
my Monday and Friday with no space in between,
my child retired and needing my care again.
So recently my mother with her newspaper.
my Monday and Friday with no space in between.
