five months can be a lifetime.
21 weeks
152 days
3652 hours each as long as a month.

far too long for lives to remain the same.
to want
to feel
to speak the same words.

but, five months aren’t long enough to change.
the situation
the will
the motivation

five months back
we spoke
i waited
you too? perhaps

for five months
we sidestep
like dancers,
without words

five months on
we agree
not to speak
it’s clear

the more things change, the more they remain the same.
