I remember now,
where I lost myself.
Funny thing is –
I had to get lost to find it.
I mean, me.
Or maybe the moment.
Both of us, probably.
Who could have known
that at the tender age of five
would be stolen
by a man
with a broken body and warped mind?
Maybe someone did know,
but they kept quiet.
I could not have guessed
that it would take a yod.
I mean, it was a literal smack from god
hand-delivered to my vexed life
that sent me spiraling backward
into the waiting darkness.
All of my secrets
lay buried in the dust of time.
kicked up puffs of silent inquiry.
Denizens blinked and stretched and yawned
at me, the old newcomer,
what took me so long to return?
