The Killing Pain
when stuffed into a plastic bag,
are unable to decompose.
Air is necessary for building up,
and for breaking down.
Between the hiatal glitches in my time stream,
I pause before stepping out of year 1873
and into an undiscovered 1997.
Undiscovered because—from my current perspective—
it will be different than my pervious passthroughs.
when layered beneath acid-free timelines,
are more likely to bred rebellious offspring.
