Our visions for the future are fading fast in a dying world.

Through your hair swiftly blows a lifetime,
as you hold your hat,
dream with scalp a-tingle nourishing
soft hope.
Eyes gleam, see eternity.
Ghosts do scalp
a silver, stubbled man in tattered overcoat,
nourished on hard cider.
Dull eyes only see
The past.


Over all shoulders
and across the sea
we swam —
         some drowned
on dry land.
Backs to the future,
we climbed down
bare trees --
winter ourselves
in white blankets
with invented
silver visions
dreamt for us.


Beneath boughs,
a clutter.
The last apples lay,
         reflect,
as no creature devours
the rot we left.
Beneath the ground we sleep
tomorrow, all the tomorrows
forgotten, rest unlike the years
we dread -- the end.
