partitions

some people are good
at building and maintaining
partitions
putting events in separate rooms
to revisit
later, if the universe
tells them to do so

many don’t have the luxury
of having chambers
where their yesterdays
can rest and fade
into bygones,
so they carry them
into tomorrows
a burden they refuse to call
a burden

a few
still live in the room
where beautiful things
used to live,
pretending they have
all they need
cocooned in pseudo safety
of a memory
