to retreat into the new future

future folk will say
if you remember 2011 thru 2019
you weren’t there

cause reality
the conversation called reality
the conversation that all my friends find interesting
have become the old Chinese curse
May you be born in an interesting time!

there are no myths or fables that truly apply
to our collective free fall future
old myths are not working
new waves have not yet arrived as yet

each must forge their own personal mythology

i seek to retreat into the new future
fantasy and fiction are my only maps
like a lilly being blown backward
into an uncertain sunrise
