Premature Retrospective Analysis




I am loathe to invite questions
I can't answer, questions of intent,
or process, or motive.

The world doesn't need my judgment.
But it doesn't need me to withhold it, either.

What was/will be the happiest/saddest I ever made someone?
What was/will be my loneliest/most triumphant moment?
My best thought/line/poem?
What did/will I leave undone?
Who will be the last person to remember me?
Who will be the last person to remember them? And them?
Who will be the last person?

We can only be judge, be judged
to the limits of our understanding.
