reverse

he removed
his hubcaps
installed
sun dials
on all four tires
drives in reverse
everywhere he goes
in the feeble dream
of turning back
the hands
of the clock
it is
a desperate hope
that fills
his empty center
as he draws
with white out
on all of things
he would rather
not see
seeking bliss
through denial
knowing damnation
comes with knowledge
ignorance
a fleeting whim
that rattles
through the belfry
where contentment
once thrived
