Streets of Yesterday

reclaiming past 

immortality is desire. I take my share. the opportunist 
me takes more upon the plaited dance of offerings.

Earth is constant renewal - reclaim. we cannot hide,
we will not be delivered. I happen upon my past and

remember tantric movement of mind, then memory 
fails me. it comes and goes with shifting scenery: 

what once was ocean is land. what once was land 
is sea: I am alive and forever so.
