Back There

faceless senior man walking along dark cemetery

Back There

hurrying away

rushing to get to somewhere

that isn’t back there

huffing and puffing and not

taking time to see

the world as I pass through it

just rushing

on and on and on

and away

like an old madman I used to know

(perhaps that was me)

(perhaps that is me)

it dawns on me that back there

is here on my back
