Dear Future

“Read these, then write your own version of a poem to the future. You might address all human beings, or a particular one, like a child coming into the world, or your own future self.

To Those Born Later,’ Bertolt Brecht

People of the Future,’ Ted Berrigan,

Look to the Future,’  Ruth Stone

A Phone Call to the Future,’ Mary Jo Salter”

-Kim Addonizio, “Ordinary Genius”

I am the future

Soon I will be

Past

A long time ago

That seems like

Yesterday

To me

A millennia

To the Present
