Ten years from now

by Devina

I sit here and I write

In the hand of the mind boggling language

Of advanced chemistry,

Early one June morning

*

Ten years from now,

Having been buried beneath

The dust of time, lost somewhere

I will find it one day,

Ten years from now.

*

I will recall this chilly morning of June,

When I had written this.

I will recall the slapping the insistent mosquitoes

How they sang near my ear, the Godforsaken creatures.

I might remember chewing on this pen

Ten years from now.

*

I may even remember this past day,

One day ten years from now.

And how much has changed, I’d say

Since those ten long years.

*

Ten years from now

all this mumbo-jumbo of

Bond breaking and bond making

And the stealthy latent energy,

Will be a little treasure

Of my youth.

*

Ah, I have but one question,

How silly am I now

I ask you,

I ask myself,

Ten years from now?

*
