eternal now

Like a building block in life’s creation

I gesture for the train

It keeps on going – faster even

as it draws ever closer – then…


It’s gone – I stand in solace

what now but wait for time to pass

It seems like an eternity

I sit and think and sit… and sit –

dazed – I stare – my eyes won’t blink

Is this my eternal now?

I leave the station and walk in wonder

I find a club – a jazz band singing

and order wine and stop to listen

They play my song – I sense a smile

from the brunette sitting at the bar

Come here often’, she says on cue

‘my first time’ I reply – obtuse

Blonde streaks within her mousy brown

her hair swishes – up then down

Her body slinks – her hands look supple

she turns to look – her fingers coupled

She turns away and sits and waits

her dress pulled up – her legs crossed over

This is my eternal now

I manage a smile – I raise a brow

She winks and stands and walks away

as if on a lead I follow

This is my eternal now –

for us there will be no ‘tomorrow’
