caught unawares (birthday poem)

1 Sep

I turned 63 in Japan before

I became 63 here

due to the dateline

sometimes i think the whole entire universe

is made up

minute by minute

as it zips in among all it’s imaginary paths

once again, another year older

caught unawares

not one bit wiser

and of course everything seems the same

even as everything changes

can’t seem to remember how i was

going to close this poem

but no matter

it has already crossed the international date line

and now it is too late

it is tomorrow
