Yesterday's Tomorrow

Yesterday’s Tomorrow
Broken faces crash down
on the ground of yesterday’s
unmet, not kept
shards of faces wept
for a time
when their bodies weren’t untied,
no more minds untwined-
this is now
and the greedy ground
hides pieces in the mud,
pulls faces through the muck,
broken, tainted specimens
of lives unwilling to admit
they never tried
or expected more
then what was placed before
their foggy, eager eyes
susceptible to lies
told of yesterday’s tomorrow
