thursday, june 29

today, i felt that we live in an age beyond everything
i thought
it is not that we have passed some threshold
it is that there are no lines left to cross
we are not even moving on that axis
any more

the future was, once
i sometimes think of it fondly but with no hope
the thin tracery of its memory
used to be hard and full of light
but now we have almost forgotten it.
