Sabotaging Blueprint

I. IF

Delirious with the minute by minute
how different it could have been, I realized nothing.

And then like a solution, I’m stuck again on If
If I was a time traveler.  It interrupts the answer for why

like a sucking between the teeth, it’s juvenile.  If I was
If I was a time traveler.  Yes it is.  Unconcerned about culpable

blame, ripe with unfortunates, If I were a time traveler I won’t have to
wait for an anomalous filler for fragmented voids, or even wish to delete a moment.

If I was a time traveler, unconcerned with real time
since change is my past and the present is my future

what once was a rabbit hole, no longer becomes familiar
with its miniature tea cups, with its no longer cluttered exclamation to the unknown.

  1. Hey, thanks for your last comment, if I didn’t say so before. Just been catching up on my reading…. you’ve been doing some really good work. Love ‘I’m stuck again on If’, ‘fragmented voids’ and the last line. Take care, Coral84 (piratesandfireflies.wordpress.com)

  4. It is such a complicated and clever poem, Cocoyea. I keep reading it, keep being dazzled and boggled by it and then get to the end and don’t know what to say. It’s one of those types of poems, just leaves the mind suspended and in awe.

    Thanks Paul.

  5. This reminds me of this song I have been listening to by David Gray, “See you on the other side”

    I always love your poems. I have regretted that I have been neglecting my bloggy friends and have missed you. Have neglected my own blog. Anyway, nice reading to get me motivated again.

    Thanks! Glad that it motivated you.
