Our Old World

We left behind our old world
the way you might leave
a glass of water on a counter
half-full
[or empty for that matter]
destined to nothing
with an investment that might
only ever collect dust
failing to recognize
the world beats on
having watched us go
our silhouette burned within eyesight
only as long
as the hour
our figure disappeared from it.
