tricycle form–“…it is all one can do to remember…”

wasteland-duesentrieb-reduced

It is all one can do to remember
the dark warmth that was immortality,
so much colder now.  Abandoned forever
 
for this coil of möbius memory
that turns and twists away from the plane 
and the sharp pull of flat reality,

turning and twisting to ever sustain
some urgent momentum to recover
delirious paths away from the pain 

of the broken gods underfoot, after
the fall, after the immortality
that is all one can do to remember.
