Fast One

It was so long ago
when I was immortal
and free with passages
of frozen time
(so it seemed)
back in the days
of serendipity
when i grabbed
love by the tail
and pinched it
all night long and
into the next day
like the fiend
that i was
it never ended
until it was over
now i am here
in this place
where conclusions come
before beginnings
and every day
brings another nail
as life continues
to wrap up my
measured immortality
like dead fish
in yesterday's newspaper
where it all ages
before my languish eyes
