i blink and it’s january again

all but a month of ambivalence;

is it really all a new beginning,

a chance to do it all over

the way you really wanted to?

but time doesn’t stand still

as resolutions sit by in scorn

time, tick, tick, moves in

easy leisure but in nimble express

to sneak up midway through

sole projections and ploys

i blink and it’s january again

all but a time of reminders

not to get lofty expectations, so

i don’t fight with the year collector

who criticizes in my face that

my year wasted away in overthought
