were striving for purity

renewing the books of us

removing the harmful pages

tear them out

shred them up

as if they never were


but they were

cannot be undone


could we erase today

what we were yesterday

can we know our tomorrow


editing yesterdays to match

the todays we want to have

we lose warning of the years

today left confused and alone

anxious at tomorrows door

unknowing where it has been


living on the thin edge of now

we have no history to guide

our step into what will be
