Big Bang













I have become
the person
I thought I'd never be.
The one who laughed
before he met you,
pretends he
is still a lot like me,
doesn't know
he became someone
else, a forgetful
version of myself,
prone to error,
especially
when glancing
in my rearview mirror,
not noticing
your memory
gaining on me today,
the past receding
at warp speed,
like distant galaxies
from the big bang,
accelerating away.
