the missing years

February 15, 2013 § Leave a comment

I didn’t live it clear enough
to recall much of it now
but, then again

I didn’t think I’d
have to keep track
of any of it

it was so
and warm
even if it didn’t seem to
adhere to logic

if you go by how
others have
it chronicled,
I should be a dozen times dead

so I can only offer
a shrug and a thankful grin
asked about
those years

there are a million paths
into crazy

only one
back out
