The Wall of Time

that wall of time

over the years

it just gets higher

the great separator

that great divide

shuffling out the old

ushering in the new

breaking bridges along the way


that builder of walls

destroyer of bridges

ensuring, at best

only memories remain

bridges built across time

memoirs adsorb the unwanted

safely travelling back


old to become


the new, new
