We are of time

We are of time – no prefigure
in this – no awaiting hours to

gain & profit – it is erroneous –
as is each minuted mandate –

A life will never be future-met
& no endurance race can exist

beyond a second – our surety –
there is no upcoming to plan –

problems exist to be resolved –
Live the questions – Rilke told

young Kappus  – Live your way
into the answer  – His warning

is yours to embrace without a
circling around to stare ahead

or seek answers beyond your
reach – futures will evade you
