Have You Noticed

Have You Noticed?
after Mary Oliver

have you noticed how certain poems linger 
in the echoes of yesterday 

how certain triggers replay
a certain phrase

how hanging onto words
engulfs an empty room

how walking through fields
begets velvet moonlit nights listening to you

how spinning a record after dropping a needle
births a mountain of longing and sorrow 

have you ever noticed 
that no matter how many times 

you block out the sights and sounds, 
they sprout their way back to your tomorrows 

ghostshauntinglongingmemoriestomorrowsyesterdays
