My life has changed from yesterday, it got transformed, it slipped away, it went astray, it moved adrift along a strident Doppler shift.
It bested me and went ahead, I was too slow for it to wait.
It didn't know it was my ride, or felt my spurs dig in its side, it missed my soft voice in its head, it didn't notice that I led.
It ran its course and fizzled out and a new life came from behind which overtook it while it laughed and left it choking on its dust, and I jumped on the faster steer.
Yesterday's gone, but I'm still here.
