Vremya

There is no is,

only was.

Can we ever really grasp the immediate,

the fleeting present?

No, the brain doesn’t work that fast.

We need to process.

All is past.

Maybe I’m addicted.

So? Who isn’t? (there’s always something)

Maybe *it*

is exactly what we need

to get through yesterday and today.

Alas, indeed,

it’s not like tomorrow’s guaranteed.

Chasy-slomanniy

Today, I realized that my clock is running slow.

Which is to say, my clock has been progressively slowing over time.

Losing seconds, minutes, “life”.

In effect, my clock has been regressing, whilst progressing.

Indeed, ipso facto, as such,

I am reminded, on so many levels, how

the supposedly “progressive” in actuality,

for the balance of humanity,

is regressive.

Transition

So, America, you “beat” us,

we, the people, USSR.

Wow, talk about pyrrhic victory!

(The scum you have enabled!)

Pray tell, do you enjoy your new enemies?

And does your 2019 beat your 2001,

beat your 1979?

1952. Nikola Mirchev

Time flies,

sometimes,

and you forget quite where you are

and/or have been.

Perhaps it’s best,

after all,

we don’t really want to know

where we’re going.

Grenlandiya (Qooroq)

Alas, tomorrow became today.

Freeze, melt, refreeze;

memories, fears,

inconsistencies.

Nevskoye..

Yesterday was a long time ago.

I drink to forget tomorrow.

Chasy-slomanniy

Gradually,

slowly,

painstakingly,

forwards,

backwards,

footsteps.

In life’s serpentine cycle,

as months and years pass,

dissolving,

time comes to have little meaning.

Ultimately,

all clocks stop.

Time flies,

everyday people die.

Time and people pass away,

forgotten every day.

Time flies

and we die.

Buried treasure,

maggots eat,

become flies.

Time…
