INFINITY

 

Infinity can travel

linger in the present

and wander into the future,

returning

to give advice

on how to conduct ourselves

in the present

with hindsight

and foresight.

 

Think of the mistakes

I could avoid: present

future

(those past are too late).

 

Yet I’d rather be foolish

and do without

the perspective

Infinity can bring,

make my mistakes as usual

and face the consequences

like everyone else.

 

AERONWY  THOMAS
