Door-Frame Projections

Mark another notch on the kitchen door-frame
this one lower than before
no
I’m not getting older
(though I am)
and it isn’t a measurement of time
but it’s going down. Every single day it’ll go down.
And there has to be a place
where this thing stops
(I hope)
and starts to go back up.
But I won’t be able to tell
not just by looking
I’ve been too afraid to mark dates
to give myself progress
(if that’s what you want to call it)
so that it’ll be easy to assume
the motion is ascending
so that I can forget this whole thing.
