IMAGES OF ETERNITY

(Dust for the Human DustBeen)

The photographer has discovered
how
to change the Present into the Past
just as fast
as he can.

So that his facsimiles can replace
the Present of the next man’s
Now.

Both the photographer
and the next man
waste the treasure
of the absence of time,
by trying to rush backwards
to the Past
in search of the vanished Present
where they had been marked
as Absent,
and then race forward
into the thought-created Future
for some more.
