you can’t go far in the future until it gets here

For Euge­nia

against our broad backs the future blows
while our past retreats in dread before us

the present, full of tight-lipped promises
floats by bear­ing detri­tus from our dreams

enough to silt the vague delta of our past
and choke its streams with long lost causes

One thought on “you can’t go far in the future until it gets here
