The Past: ‘talking it out, the last hour, I’m through trying now’ – elliott

that place where past meets present
is sometimes a bitter contest,
in which the rules,
usually governed by choice,
are held in bondage,
and the past,
the returning champion
now faces a new foe,
an underdog of hope,
that tomorrow’s choice is
somehow independent of
yesterday’s,
and if this is a terrible lie,
I should prefer to believe it
for my sake and for yours.
