BULLET IN MY POCKET
(11/4/16)

knowing
the future
is a comforting
thought

a knowledge
that makes
every day
more endurable

more
enjoyable

giving me
a confidence
that I see lacking
in others

those without
a better grasp
upon reality

those
with far less
certain futures

at least
less certain
as far
as they can
accept

of course

from a
cosmological
standpoint

we all have
the same
future

when we exist
as infinitesimal whispers
in an infinitely noisy
universe

we should learn
just a bit
of sign language

pointing those
loaded fingers
of understanding
at our temples
