Time Is A Novocaine

For a moment
A split second snap
A commonality
A drift – a mutual send off
One foot in front of the other
Sayonara amigos mantra
There are songs…how wide the river is
Your presence touched me so deeply
I almost drowned
I’m still gasping for air
I weep as I walk
Low tide Hudson River high
The sound of the wind has shifted
North, south, east, west…left or right
Much of what I thought I knew…I didn’t

“What you know, what you know you don’t know,
what you don’t know you don’t know…”

Time is a novocaine
