Today tastes empty
Yesterday was numb—nothing
Day before yesterday, festered regret
Yesterday before yesterday and yesterday, pain.
Further back, scourged gut hollowed out with pure loss
Lost time, have I? But today tastes
tastes today, but I have time—lost.
Loss pure without hollowed gut scourged back further
Pain, yesterday and yesterday before yesterday
Regret festered yesterday, before day
Nothing—numb was yesterday
Empty tastes today
