transport is arranged

we were young then
but we’re younger now
and less wise

less now
than when we didn’t know so much

wisdom’s just another word
for remembering
what you forgot
what was really important

those things
that seemed so careless
were actually perfectly placed

a place you hid
a place you found
amidst the scent
of childhood flowers
your mother planted in a garden
before you knew
what words were
or what they could do
and undo

there is no going back
but there is a way to go forward
while reaching back
all the way back

our body is a bridge
between two worlds

those things
that you thought
were lost
are waiting
and transport is arranged
