Fall 2019 / Poetry 2019 / Volume 50

the moment By: Lee Clark Zumpe

the moment arrives without an omen

it crests and breaks upon me

and I

pinching my nose

to save my breath

get caught up in the swell


once passed it is past:

a slice of history

to be distorted

upon recollection


time builds shoddy roads

hardly worth retracing
