Attend

.
ahead/astern

“behind” ’s a metaphor for:
lingering to catch
what’s-up before I’m
so far ahead I’ve forgotten
what was on my mind
when blood was running fast
and what’s-up is just a retrospective blur
hardly worth remembering,
a rush that couldn’t last

attend

first go slow so
life is not mere flash
