Todd Mercer

Ephemeral & Transitory

We have until they go out into the world,
after which we wonder if we really had them at all,
the way the clock and the calendar
flap in the wind
on the last standing wall
of heartbreak.

Todd Mercer was born ready, then was not at all ready, next became over-confident believing himself more than ready, followed by being notably unready, and hopefully now is once again ready.
