Carving in Glass

 Carving in Glass

If you knew at the time

you would’ve taken more care

gone a bit slower

milked it all afternoon

instead you assumed

it was what was owed to you

as your mother’s favorite

the future assured

and yet it’s always been you

even as the other faces and times

have commandeered

the view

you were wrong to assume

a lack of awareness

on your part at that time

wouldn’t have any effect

on your future
