Ode to Once

ODE TO ONCE
Once beneath the radar
Twice amongst his words
Three times within his heart
It didn’t seem absurd.
Once the thought was out
Twice it entered ears
More than that it wiggled in
And lounged and choked out tears.
Once he spoke aloud
It faltered, fractured, faded
So far away
Far, far away
Thrust into lives
We’re made to play
This once was there,
And then decayed.
So goodbye, once, long jaded.
