Gone forever

Hold tight to things
as you know them now,
for soon they’ll all be gone.
the familiar dismembered
and consigned to the refuse heap
that is the past, that the
mobile society has no caring for,
gone, gone forever . . .
 

Dark Matter

The shadow has form
without substance,
yet without substance
the shadow would occupy no space,
as indeed it does not—
non est, nisi est.

Yet the shadow is real enough
for all that it is untouchable
(at least I sense as much).

What we perceive in life
is all we have to talk about—
conjecture is real enough
despite lacking substance.

All that is real is transient,
that is the lesson of time,
and without time
there would be no space
in which to argue the toss!
