"Forward is the only way"

Just So

Though the day grows long and late
This unique ubiquity
Calling us together here
Personal propinquity
Stretching out from far to near
"Diesen Kuss der ganzen Welt"
Human solidarity
Always (if not always felt)

This is what I celebrate
Even though I know we go
To where we have never been
Sooner than we ever know
When the cycle turns again
Cloud above and smoke below
The fog of the world between

Time is neither fast nor slow
Time is only now
Overlapping you and me
As now will allow
All its pleasure all its pain
Felt (not knowing how)
In this moment of this day

Never mind the past
Forward is the only way
(There is no reverse)
Never mind what others say
(Theirs was even worse)
Now is neither slow nor fast
But the universe
Just the way it is: just so
