Nirvana Views (A Poem)

Nirvana Views
There are times when
you can’t go back but
then you can.
Maybe you can’t
be twenty again
when so little mattered.
Suddenly
it seems so much matters
that probably really doesn’t
and you can’t slow down
and you can’t speed up
and you won’t
give yourself a chance
already.
Held up
as though lit from behind
by a candle’s golden flame
the picture
looks perfect.
If you get there,
don’t be looking back.
Don’t blink.
