Being Human

The eager note on my heart said
Call me, I’ll be waiting for a lifetime
In the loneliness of autumns zealous

With the casually invited years
As they breeze past bemused Earths
And in that avocado salad morning light

I’ll find spirit (in the imagination)
Waiting for today, a kangroo of all days
That cannot justify the dreams we had

Nor the places we are going
Or the possibility of the poetry of surprise
For after all, it’s anticipation that fuels

Divinity and the future’s innovations
That’s what I live for, the meaning of progress.
