Is this really how it goes?
Fade in. Fade out.
We were once in high relief –
all angles from chin
to strategies.
Certain of everything.
Fade out. Fade in.
You’re coming into focus,
finding out where
your edges are,
discovering the things
that mark you
and make you.
Fade out.
Our colors run,
eager to be a part
of your future,
leaving contented shades
of a dissolving past.
Fade out.
Yes, this is how it goes.
And will always go.
Fade out.
