The dogma of the temporal nomad

is an acceptance of the evanescence

of all, from the lacklustre to the astral, 

for even what purports to alter one's course

on a visceral level, has but an ephemeral tether, 

and is soon to be rejected by a newborn Present,

able solely to be resurrected by a Memory

so rudimentary as to sculpt faulty forms

using mud procured from the riverbank 

where Heraclitus sat and saw only Flux...

An amazing poem, Holden. As usual you have hit the centre of your target!
I love the
'Soon to be rejected by a newq born present.'
So true... 😎
