Never Blink - Poem by Justin Tallman

With a blink of an eye
any eye
left or right
or both
your life
is what it is

Blink once
and there you are
in the arms
of a perfect romantic moment
warm and covered
in the scent, nude
her head resting
on your chest
rising
the rhythm, your heart
says 'forever'

Blink twice
life figures it's self
out
That nude girl, is now
just a nude body
resting
on another chest
rising
and their rhythm, their heart
says 'don't worry'

Blink three times
nothing but drunken apathy
cold and looking for warm
bodies
fingers jiggle the door knob
to a bathroom, filled with lonesome
porcelain
and within the mirror, you will only find
a nostalgic fragment
of what you used
to be
