A Time Table

Overusing used up the meeting point which is a
knowledge I can only know now after giving the
gift I wanted to give you three days before I came
to realize the realization that the only real thing to
identify in your identity is a need to nullify my
need to know you better and to never get involved
while still involving myself in a game gone bad
before the band could even play the song you sung
and still sing when you need my attention to keep
you from attending your own funeral.

 
 

The real thing to remember is what I remember of
the memories that took us miles of time to tune up
and the celebration we felt when our age became
cerebral and all we needed the whole time was
nothing we needed at all.

 
 

Now I don’t need to think about it but I wouldn’t
understand what should be understood without
thinking about you bringing me to where I am
now.

Vincent Frontero is an undergraduate English and creative writing student at the University of Alabama. He is originally from Spring Lake, NJ.

Richie Montgomery: “My philosophical surrealistic drawings are known for their unique twist on life and our perspective of it. The “hidden in plain sight” details of my work are ruminants of the great masters like M.C. Escher and Salvador Dali. I have been drawing my entire life and have had no formal training other than just my own desire to create from the time I could hold a crayon or pencil. I enjoy many different types of art yet surrealism holds my passion the most.”
