It was easier for you to fall in love then
than it is now
being a product of commodity
and society.
Then it was only a matter of
lifting a pen
inking out the words that didn’t fit
to reveal the ones that did.
A matter of conjuring to the surface
some small effect.
You now,
waiting in the wasteland
between birth and death.
You, wondering where has it all changed
in the seconds before now
in the seconds after then
You, wondering why
know that I too love you
but only for this moment.
