The FAB&PP Poem of the Month for December

another fifty passes
and dorothy wonders at me
about the silences
between the lines

scattered lives
distant friends
but life’s connections
at a distance
through the years

forty at a time, or
fifty, or ten

[we used to think a lot
about today, yesterday, or so
it seems]

and now space curves
and curls around another
segmented measured
moment and we are
again at least

as close
as we ever were
        and that’s

more real
(and certain)ly than time

For Mike and Maggie and John and Sally and Dorothy and all the others
