“Fete” Accompli

“Fete” Accompli 

by Myesha D. Jenkins ©

 

This year, stumbles upon

Three decades and nine

A newness ushered in

Without sparkle or shine

 

The gift box, rectangular

With sharp pointy edges

No need to unencumber

The top from its ledges

 

Because the innards, yet visible

Translucent and fragile

Inevitably examined by virtue

Of existence desired to be removed

 

You always, not waiting

Not seeing due to flight

You zigged while it zagged

You hemmed while it hawed

 

Your faith, seeking understanding

yet instead sought praise

Body sought not itself

In spirit and in truth

 

This year, stumbles on

Three decades and nine

No hopes for recoiled rewind

Only forward and no one is coming
