Time Travel


I woke up this morning

drank coffee

fed the cats

jumped in my car and


went back in time.

Nothing had changed.

Everything was different.

I went back to school


walked the hallways

like a ghost like

the invisible man.

I drove downtown and


stared up at the attic window

where we smoked cigarettes

and waited

had sex


made love

made elaborate plans for

the future

which turned somehow


into this.

In the neighbor’s backyard I

had a somber moonlit funeral

for Max our parakeet who


got sick and never got better.

Love didn’t save us

I cried that night.

I said goodbye.


Heaven is a dream I had.

Time isn’t real.

I got back in my car.

I drove off the face of your world.
