Matthew Hefferon — Thirty Steps in Thirty Seconds

Thirty steps
Thirty seconds
Thirty meaningless moments
Tying two spaces together.

Moments repeated,
But rarely recalled.
Steps suppressed in memory
Slip into the ether.

Capturing thirty seconds.
Thirty steps.
Giving meaning
To moments once wasted.

Saving these steps.
Freezing lost time.
Stringing seconds together
With light.

No longer thirty
forgotten seconds.
No longer thirty
forgotten steps.

Strings of light
Tell tales of a man
returning home.
