SELF HELP: Palinopsia

I’m ageing inwards

between hairline

nose pores

& the window

 

there is no refresher

in how to survive

your fog outline

 

vibrates my gaze

shaped always the same each—

but I might lose you or enter

the wrong password three times

 

for flushed cheeks

a loudspeaker might say

 

‘hold an ice cube to your wrist’

or ‘sit on a plush armchair

indefinitely’

 

both produce puddles

neither propels me forward
