the future

Click here to hear the poet read his words:


the future


today is the end
of all that we were
of all that we promised
ourselves
and each other

you thought I was perfect
for you
you said
but you said it
in the past tense
and not the present
so
today is the end
of the future

    What an extraordinary, bittersweet expression which contains so much.
    Beautiful.
    The thought must be in the air.
    I read in Steinbeck’s The Pearl this morning:
    But now it was gone and there was no retrieving it. And knowing this, she abandoned the past instantly.’
