“Omphalos”

Caleb Alexander

In the future they invented
time travel
and destroyed the past,
so they couldn’t invent time travel
again.


Those old photos have spaces
of people that never existed
or exited. Every time
you close your eyes,
there’s a small
prayer


that you and I wake up
the same
and in the same
place.
