somewhere along the way

somewhere along the way
we changed
it shows up in this reflection
in this screen
straggly old man
who’s eyes are guiltless
about all the things we felt guilty about
we enjoy aloneness
we guiltlessly enjoy aloneness
without even a recognizable reflection
for company

what happened?
well, i could list
a long list
of listlessly affected events
and an even longer list
of listful thoughts
that fought in the war of whether
or not

but, somewhere along the way
laughable and immanent
cards got dealt
cards got shuffled through arcanas
cards got played
through a fools incarnations
through rounds and rounds
and rounds and rounds
till the archetypes displayed
the flip-book smiles
of obliteration.
