Future’s Aftertaste

It all starts now

the entire future of our entire universe

starts right now

it has to start some time

and I’m starting with soup

and the entire future started

six lines before

and here we are

staring at the menu


yet too afraid to order

the entree

knowing the house usually overcooks the steak

and pasta el dente usually comes with teeth

still here we are

because here we have to be

but we still have to see the menu

so we

can order up our future

to the taste of the house

and hope the chef

gets it right.
