the lost properties department

yesterday
or maybe the day before
I found I suddenly
had to check myself in
to the lost properties department

the clerk behind the counter
kept fading in and out
but was there long enough
to ask me
what the problem was

well
I said
how long have you got?
I started out okay
I had displacement, distance, velocity, acceleration and speed

yes she said

and I mean
well
this time yesterday
I was pretty confident
that all of this
was in frame of reference to an observer
measuring the change in position of my body relative to that frame with change in time

go on, she said

it’s just
now I find
I’m kinda
nowhere

hmm, she said
fill out this form
I’ll see what I can do
