yesterday?

do I know
that life existed
yesterday

I remember
clearly
that it did

the details
of the day I had

the time I spent
talking so earnestly
with you

but that was then

but
was that
then

what I recall –
was that a real life
or
some thing
my mind made up
to fill a space
that I name

the memory
of yesterday

maybe
that life

this life

was never
really
until I thought
today
