Memory Metaphors

Is your past in season
hunt for the images that flashed
their single use bulbs, unsustainable,

a coal-powered riverside plant
disrupting the stream
polluting the formerly clear air

a conversation with the environment
introducing your labor to capital
to earn your prison

one more day to form a sentence
ending on a period
but wait, there are two more

your elliptical orbit
a solar system with one light 
and many gravities

you'll die before you become the second person
as your pre-Copernican life
revolves around itself.
