Subject To Time


 . . . eyes stained with clouds . . .

-Joseph Brodsky, “Törnfallet”

 

And smeared with the smoke of tailpipes

are the legs

all the way through

these brand new jeans.

 

The chest took a bullet from the expanse

and left it blue

to prove that space

fills everything

 

And distance is not subject to time

they’ve been

discontinued.

Get used to it as eyes drift from books

and up to the sky

Anything can change

even if only

for a trial run.

  1. Everything changes, trial runs or otherwise….

    From: “There is a meadow in Sweden
    where I lie smitten…”

    To: “The chest took a bullet from the expanse
    and left it blue”

    I like your poem.
