We Saw Time Take the Stairs


Weather being en apesanteur, 4x6 inches, linocut monoprint, 2016


Do not blame me or what you hear,

We was once love birds without a nest.

Do not blame friendship or what I served,

Perhaps more would have been a better meal.

Do not blame time for when we met,

I was too much in this and you in that.

Do not blame what we've become my friend

For sometimes adios is often not the end

And if they're,

The memories are there to tend


The truth is, 

Before we first said 'hi', played high

And laughed so hard! 

We knew time would one day take the stairs

But we were too hysterical...by our moments

That when she did,

We failed to ask her where.?
