Future Sight

Every day I’m frustrated by
how I can’t see the future
Tantalizing moments just out of reach
If I could tap a tachyon stream
If I could have Third Sight
If tarot cards read true
Or the I-Ching be unambiguous;
Maybe then I could tell
when
things
go to
hell.
To be fair, they could also be swell;
But it would be nice to know
ahead of time.
Time locks us in the present
Time gives us a future we cannot see
Time gives us a past to grieve over
Whoever says time
is a friend
don’t know
diddly.
