2 Time Poems, circa 1990s

So How Does this Time Thing Work?

or

I Am Distracted by the Passing of Moments

now

but now becomes then

now a new now– NOW!

then– then, and again and again

each now becoming then

you can go way back when

a zillions thens

each one having been

a now

when now was then

So How Does this Time Thing Work (part 2)

or

Our Limited Comprehension Cannot Grasp Time Traveling in More than One Direction

you can pull a now to then

but can you push a now to when?

when being (for now)

a now from now

then when upon when

a zillion whens then

each one becoming

a now

when now would be when
