Poetry | In the Interim

 

In the Interim

In the interim ‘tween dark and dark

We scrape,  we scratch, we endure—

Assuming  import.

As that interim narrows to a slit

We scramble anxiously to gather

Shreds of legacy,

Scraps of relevancy,

Hoping they  will live on

In the interim of others,

Until we remember,

Those others’ interims

Are narrowing too.
