Sherri Caudell

last night,
late at night,

you are starting the slow fade.
straw baskets, floral borders—
pineapple perimeters.

welcome to
the beginning.
the race is on again,

around and around the aisles
in your dreams
sinking ground

peppered with teal and violet.
glass circles overlapping—
there is a never-ending companionship

it is always
overhearing. everything.
jumping into the silver—

slicing through the deep—
shivering and the same—
as when you started.

it is different this time.
you are not you.
bells and troubles—

these will never come to be.
they have already taken place.
your mind is full of everything. repeated.
