i’m sorry, William

eighteen thousand seconds from now
the sun tea will be ready
eighteen years from now
j and t will be twenty two and twenty, respectively

eighteen days from now
something will happen i’m sure
eighteen lifetimes from now
will anyone remember us?

tomorrow will not care
what today promised
and yesterday doesn’t know anything

i’ll be ninety six some day
and i’ll look around
“it was a good life”
