Chase, Chasing

I have only ever chased these
words, retraced and
outpaced these
remembered halves and thirds,
scratched thoughts and
in the fugitive

We are abased and outpaced by
life’s exigencies, and

everything is memory

injuries, empathies, elegies

a thing remembered, a
hint at repeating

life is only ever a footrace
displaced, and we are
dogfaced soldiers
eagerly wishing trace
upon what we already knew.
