for a year, i walked around in circles with you,
for a year, i stayed on that track
and did not stray
and for a year, i watched as the scenery
didn't change, and the images slowly looped
and then the audio did, too,
and i could not feign the blinders
that i did not have to blame
the fear of being lost,
the belief that i
was not enough,
they were not true and it didn't
end up mattering in the end,
because that record only played
when i knowingly went around on it.
