prophecy

poetry is the science of prophecy
a poet sees the world
the same world you do
the poet sees the pattern
repeating… repeating…
time after time
he cuts the pictures
words
shows you just the pieces
the pieces that are the same
the same for millennia
the pieces that haven’t changed
the pieces that will not change
cannot change
he shows you these pieces
and time connects the dots
poets don’t write the future
poets don’t write the past
poets don’t even notice the present
poets write the always
poets write the eternal
the future has no choice
