Always To Be Elsewhere

Always to be elsewhere, otherwise
in dream old longings reappear
disguised as prohibitions, strutting
like stagey tyrants, swagging wooden swords.

The in-between is always almost where
our hearts, escaped from others’ minds,
beat out big desires in fits and starts.
Grubby off-camera hands flip months

and days so fast they fly off-screen.
To want to move wants everything.
