pardon – Sherri Caudell

paisley shadows and shiny
stone canines—
globes inlaid with mother of pearl.

around the world and
back and forth.
you discuss your very own

depth. repetition,
in shallow hallows.
please forget this isn’t

happening—
business as usual.
you are more important

cavernous hiding spots,
together in the catacombs,
we are invisible.

trills and
the beat, beat, beat—
thrilling upwards,

falling backwards.
something is
missing—

this city of gold,
its yearbook is empty.
time is always

running around.
tomorrow will not come.
today is amazement.
