those in the present always think
they are the most significant.
a big shift is happening in our generation,
to some degree this is true;
after all, we are living now --
perched atop urgent
an immutable past and an idealized future
which may never occur.
the diving bell of the cerebellum runs
deep, like a loyal retriever until the end,
chasing divine play, fire-cracker leaves,
from molecular to spiritual,
we pay twice
for admittance to
this attenuating melee:
mercifully injected by the
placebos of time and love.
