20 Versions Of Tomorrow - Poem by Wanda Swim Strunk

20 versions of tomorrow
Play out in my head

Tail lights and Street lights
Sprinkle the sky with electronic rubies

Leafless trees upstretch their branches
Like arms in hallejuh to God above

20 Converstions I'll have tomorrow
Play over in my head

Shiney onyx rain washed roads
Lay out before me like licorice ropes

Water under moving tires crackle like bacon
The passenger seat void except radio blather

20 Versions of tomorrow
All possible, none probable

My blinker is clicking in time
With the anxious beats in my chest

I turn left into my driveway
No time left for today

Just the 20 versions of tomorrow
And what lies for me ahead
