Know Your Place

It is spring
And once again
He is mocked by fresh leaves
Comfortable with their role
In this fuckery
While he struggles
To leave behind the years
Remembered as a dream

The past summarized
In one admittance

He has not become

No sidestepping tomorrow’s charge
The lost nights
And forgotten promises
Buried beneath
Half hearted resolutions

Take it away
No longer will he look for meaning
He accepts the fact
Movie sets will forever transform
Before he catches
The stage hands

He can’t save anything
Or anyone
Anymore than he can preserve
His own sanity

Not tonight

It is easier this way
