Tied

O if there were knots
could tie the shining day
to its shininess,
migrate
ghosts loathe to leave their
home. Afterthoughts like
automatic writing–
waiting, waiting, waiting,
not to confuse
the memory of it with
the regret one later feels.
What happens that
cuts you back
attaches itself,
renovates the far mind,
arrives before you do.
Such tiredness not
to resist fortune
or where you hid in your
things–
some garbled message
from the darkling empire of
the rotary telephone.
