I am behind, there’s no denying it.
Although as a category, as a state of being, does Behind exist?
I am just sitting here, aware
although not with clarity enough to say just how, just where the “should haves” go
that a prior lack has brought about a present lagging.
Which one is my whip hand?

Speed! A kick of hooves!
(Be-hind!)
There’s no way, I can’t sail aloft, survey, pinpoint the one or several incidents of slippage that might have thrown my stride off whack;
The gate! The malfunction! The tricks of memory!
I’m no Pegasus. Everyone else’s rump, from a distance: that’s my view when the dust clears, which is seldom, as you know.
Gee. . .hah. Hang on: what are the odds that I’m a lap ahead?
