Overconfident currents fold over the lies
we lead, treading over the shallow
lives that we envisioned as a casket of regret
among mourners, paying their respects
to avoidable memories and unforgettable baggage.
We’ve complicated progress in the past sense;
the past tense reveals our future as us engaged to wed.
