being present

we trade tomorrow’s today
make malleable toys of our
memories of yesterday
never tangible; artificially sweetened
creating arbitrary deadlines dressed as goals
letting moments melt in our hands
setting sights; mere mirages
periphery visions clouding the tunnel
fighting for the light at the end
instead of sparking fire in the shadows.
