Futures

When tears don’t come
& all the pain of
Things persist
In the heart

Even after the
Movement
Of clocks’ hands
The turning of
Glowing numbers

Comforting through
The implication
Of futures
Futures
& more futures

Like blocks
Building
Themselves
Water pouring
Itself into
The forms
Of life’s
Portals

On channels
Of transmission
Finding
Information from
Those who
Won’t hold it
Anymore

Narrative memory
Pouring through
Doors & floors
Open windows
Invite outpours

Moody great
Rains cry
Out in plenty
For us all

Releasing
Calls for
More
