i read
the words
i wrote
last year

and i stop and marvel

my recollection
of writing those things
of feeling those things
is sketchy at best

i read
of my

and that is what i did
for so long. . .

yet i never got anywhere

but then
was forced
to disengage
to sit still

and having done so
i have gone so far
from where i started

which is why


i read
the words
i wrote
last year

i stop and marvel

i would like to think the poem tells the story well enough. but if you're left puzzled, you can always ask me about it...
