Where Am I?



I embrace who I was before this embrace.
I reject who I was before this rejection.
I embrace the past.  I reject the past.
Who is now?  Where is now?
Now now is past.
There's a new now—and now it's passed.
Am I now, or is now only the edge
of my majority, which is then?
Am I a thin accretion
on something which is over?
What is no longer cannot be embraced.
What is no longer cannot be rejected.
What is no longer cannot be.
Where am I?  When is me?
