Southwest 26: (Google Sonnet 18: The Past)

The Demons That Keep Rising Up From The Past
to both obsession with and blindness to the past

Some of you may remember my earlier diaries over the past
probably won't take as many roadtrips over the summer
     as I have in the past.
Many of us have played out "what if" scenarios about
     this kind of thing in the past
without apology and without encumbrances from the past
have had nuanced positions in the past.
For acquiring data which is reaching farther into the past,
you're going to build a bridge from the past to the future
before you go reminiscing about how much better the past was.

I'm betting some of you have given this issue a bit
     of thought in the past
but to my eye the substance often remains amazingly akin
     to that of the past.
If you’ve struggled with persona development in the past
language is more or less bare of allusion to the past,
or turning their back on the outdated methods of the past
briefings will continue as they have in the past.
