In waiting, regression

Aliveness mirrors history’s looking glass 🪞
past becomes present, life stories relegated
back to basics – as if humankind were uninformed
information archived, dammed up

It hurts but no surprise, people made pawns ♟️
clams hugger-mugger, the worst
wandering for real, not independent but in
fields and tents, discarded wasteland of dissonance

Heard and seen but unwitnessed 👁️‍🗨️
their 40 days as if they might
Be it or be gone!
Meanwhile we wait.
