Based on Longing

Cohen had it right; how many times
must you fall, yet sense no bottom at all
and hit the blank space
like the generation you cannot attribute your flaws to.

I see things in hindsight,
but that’s no gift
if only it were true
when you least expected it.
‘regret isn’t real’;
don’t hold for too long–
things of this sort
are easier said than done.
