Ordinary Absence

I tried to stick my world
to your cart but now this is all
become unhitched
Willing all this strangeness into
something that isn’t
pain/anger; searching for reasons
to change the story
Clothing remorse in anything
there is instead
something external that drives
this wandering
The gaps in the memory
to cue the remaining gasps
