Forever Now

Present Tense

Driving along at the speed of light I note:

Ahead of me
the edge of the earth falling off into bottomless shadow.
Beside me
the loose gravel shoulders secreting years of tomorrows.

Uncertainty rides along unable to map
destinations hereafter the end of this day.

Behind me
the red glow of taillight like a vapor trail of another time, another world.
Beyond that
the compressed black light of time travel which has brought me to now.
