progression

this is not a progression,
this doesn’t just get better,
things may seem as though
they are improving
but that is just an illusion,
I ride uneven ellipses,
showing periodic signs
of hope,
every step reaches
the apex,
every step begins
a long descent,
every time the pattern
of peaks and valleys
gets solved,
it gets broken,
and we go hoping for that
progression again
