As of late

Lately I’ve been lost among them.
Lately, as the minutes lapse,
I’ve been a stand-in someone,
And the substitute I’ve furnished
Hasn’t handled burdens well.

Lately hasn’t been but stopgap
Answers to a question
Every morning as the rains
Pour in to ask me how I do,
And truth be told I’ve only
Lately given in to makeshift
Ways of patronizing time
So that it stays a bit beyond me.

Lately I’ve the thinnest grasp
Of seconds simply passing,
And it’s every second guess
That catches hold.

Lately it’s the traffic in and out,
And it’s my aging,
And the puerile dance of moments
Lately paints my likeness well.
