revisited illusions

Heavy-handed subtleties hummed
with metaphoric meaning:
a twist where there’s no planned-for plot:
a gift without a gift receipt.

If one wakes up seeking justice,
two will never be allowed to sleep.
If one wakes up feeling sentimental,
one will forsake all one’s lurid dreams.

The mile marker is a mile away:
you’ll never get there going backwards.
Over-calculate a simple sum:
get an answer torn to tatters.

For:
if-it-weres
are causeless hopes,
and if-it-ises
are awaited concerns,
and time will tell
the tale it has been spinning
all along
all alone
all along.
