Whether Futures

Contingents wait on the back line
shall the call place number longitude
rolling directly cardinal will consign
our lives to the history of memory.

And yet, are not these images 
of days not yet passed
living in memory
futures amassed?

The before blurs between after
and what had appeared Venn
is diagrammed like milk
spread across a cup of tea.

Forks in the rice
up or down answered by
an action
because hunger is a lie.
