He Likes to Think

He likes to think he has

forever

to do this, that or

whatever,

but after looking in the

wrap around mirrors,

he knows the time left to

be in arrears.

So he better make the most

before his life is toast

or rump roast

or to be remembered a

long, long time ago as

the young man with

the most.

So he determined

to make the most

of what is left

even though it is

bereft

of what was the

best.

And then he slapped

himself upside the head

and realized that the

rest

could still be the

best –

better than all that came

before

as a prelude to just that

little bit more,

and so he finally began to

figure out the

score that more is more

right now and not a minute

before because the minute

before 

is gone

and the future is

now

on .
