Tomorrow's Standing


So it's...I don't want to say it...
'Yo knows what days it is'

So it was perfectly...clear...
near and unreal

I found grounds...and planted
ways and means

Then harvested arrears and debits
and accrued total assets

Yesterday...came out of the future
to be today
only to slip away

And as I look back,

I sense tomorrow's standing
in the doorway asking,
'May I come in? '

What do I say?

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
