Ancient Paper

Ancient paper

In the zipped pocket

Of an old leather bag






A life once lived

Depicting only details

Of places and times


Yet true in a way

Having been there

The fading papers

Create a distance

That doesn’t occur

In my mind

Signaling and

Pushing me into the present

I shake my head awakening

And step out into the current timeline

Once again
