Triggered Start

Unnoticed,

ignored,

I’d go as far as

neglected.

So this is

the triggered start.

There have been first times,

but none like this.

This time,

unlike all the rest,

the 4AM call

has gone unnoticed.

Picking up

was never a problem

before all this

time and attention change.

There’s limited time,

limited attention

I get all that

that’s not what I’m saying.

There have been

26 years of yesterdays,

filling gaps

of moments and memories.

Forget all that,

let’s just throw yesterday away

down the proverbial virtual drain.

Today the trigger starts

it’s something

I can’t quite fully explain

this fucking corner

where I’ve been placed.

The reason for all this

is terminal perhaps

an unfair

punch to the gut.

Push Us all away

shove if you must

silence

such a wonderful friend

so much better than

the one that I’ve got.
