Even Now – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“History is always changing behind us, and the past changes a little every time we retell it.” Hilary Mantel

Even Now

I really don't want to inhabit the past,
to be its victim of obsessions that 
exhaust and imprison,
all those tangled feelings looking
for expiation from the complex 
web of experiences that clutch so tightly,
and even now, with faint trace,
haunting me with what ifs and maybes.
