Getting Ahead

.
ahead/astern—
behind is 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!

go slow so’s
life is not mere flash
