bring present’s hand a flask

gerhard richter

to decant past…the day month year,

know memory drifts to debris…sifts

time’s ocean depth to feed dim glow

adaptive to deep fathoms night

instead…bring present’s hand a flask

brimmed overflow with instants sparkling

 through bright senses of the now

as if each draught were New Year’s

morning twelve…and shining
