How to Regret

In front of all these things before me, I will do something

Behind all these things after me, I will do something

I will do something


It will not do about being seen or how it is that one sees

It will be done about not seeing and about not being seen

About all the time away


How it should only arrive again in a retaken promise

The non-speaking intention of an oversized gift

Whatever the aftermath in this divide


How things may have started before these things started

Since the start of the day is at the end of a day

The first day before and after
