It is a liminal space, wherever you are, 
fuzzy and indistinct. They say old memories

come out in dreams, that things the conscious
has refused bubble up, that maybe Freud’s 

iceberg is melting and the water around us is
a dreamlike slurry of past and present, 

imagination and memory, pain and deflection.
What I wish I could say to you, what I wish

you could realise, is how little you have to know
right now, you don’t have to know it all right now,

you have plenty of time even though you see yourself
as an hourglass running out of sand.

i wish i could tell you that everything that is about to be said
to you is not worth your time, that who will say it to you

is not worth your time. she has never been worth your time,
and you will not realise it until now. 

but i know you would not listen to me. you would see through me.
so i do not. i cannot change your fate. 
another conference piece, inspired by Geffrey Davis's "I Dream of Meeting Myself, Age Seven, County Fair Field Trip." this piece is a reflection on the same age i was when the main incident in "37 ways you know you're being lied to" happened. give it a read as well if you haven't already

    "you have plenty of time even though you see yourself/as an hourglass running out of sand." that line hit so hard for me. fantastic piece!

    “ but i know you would not listen to me. you would see through me. / so i do not. i cannot change your fate. “ just takes the wind out of you with that final line. ah.
