Finely Honed

Are these passing fancies
what are passing now for dreams
or are we just pushing back
against the nightmare screams
will they stand up
to time’s brutal winds
or will we have to
start all over again

After years of practice
I can now regret
a variety of things
that haven’t happened yet
Honing these skills
like a ginsu knife
explains a lot
about my life

It seems like every
sigh of relief
is followed by
some new looming grief
so I never get
in any hurry
to snatch defeat
from the jaws of victory
