Timeless

My two-year absence
went unnoticed in the town
…that time forgot.

The missing syllable in the last line represents me, off in Arizona while life in the town where I lived for two decades flowed on without a ripple. The only change I’ve noticed is that the trees are taller and the town built a new park. It’s somehow reassuring that people thought I was still here by the Bay while I was actually basking in the desert sun.
