calendar

pinned up on the wall,
six months out of date: deny
time (remains unchanged)

—–

frozen in time, still
unscarred with marks, still pretending
the days are unmoved.

—–

scrawled over with thick
marker, heavy X by X,
shows: the countdown’s on.

  1. Another masterly collection. I can sympathise with the out of date calender. I bought a beautiful diary once and it was blank at the end of the year. Such a waste.
