Your Present Tomorrow


I wonder too much about 
someone else’s present, 
who may happen to be part of my past. 
This might have something to do 
with the fact I'll never have 
too bright a future to consider.
The funny part of all this 
remains that the only time 
I’m “present” is when 
I’m chronicling these expeditions 
into a past that’s fictitious at best 
and that other present 
which is not my own.
It’s my sole claim to mindfulness
and I’m only borrowing it.
Well, stealing it. But only
for the hour that I touch
these keys, leaving fingerprints
on your present
…tomorrow.
