DPF / Cotter

For the future I’d like to meet in each moment and not know a second ahead of time, from Poetry, October 2016.

from Time Traveler / by Patrick Cotter

Now is before he was born. Days of air
shaken by bees, crow song probing eaves
and quays. Maker of the future a perfect
terra-cotta tense, a tense which sings.
