Cutting Time


“When you cut into the present, the future leaks out”
― William S. Burroughs


One cut to distribute
This moment can be shared
yet it drips
past participles dangling
as I hand off
the golden shining
to future endeavours.
Meaning what?
I used to know
yet uncertainty is the gift of age
as less becomes clear.
Another present of tense time.
Yet through uncertainty
things become clearer.
We make up the future from present concepts
We alter the past through present awareness
and the dripping continues.
We make memories that haven’t happened yet
and contribute to present joy
Another cut and the scene stops
The actors leave the present stage
and the future commences.
— G A Rosenberg
