These Islands We Flee

The yesterday before tomorrow
turned before our eyes.
Look away, look away.
Wheels grinding in a symphony
…escape gone
before it was ours.
Remembered heartbreak,
real forever.
Memories imprinted
while still befalling.
Time to row.
Words fall silent between floating rooftops.
Time to steer.
More than one paddle breaks the surface.
