Future Tense

So, the odd thing about today's poem is that I wrote it without realizing that there was a Dali painting that went with it!


Future Tense

Once
I rode the elephant
and knew her smell.
Then
I was the swan
paddling
no one could
tell that
Now
I was
remembering
the sound of those 
round mourning feet
feeling the
cygnets like the future
riding my back.
