By Jim Trainer
what happens these days is what happens
for the rest of your life
the present moment clanging like
a migraine, or an alarm
going off so long you can’t hear it anymore
the present moment, a seed in the fallen fruit
the present moment stopping the locomotive
on a dime
and lifting it from the tracks
this is your reckoning.
