What if…?

G.James, What if…?, 2017

Roused from dreams and mind still closed.

Picked up paper. Picked up pen.

From sleep’s dark depths a question posed.

What if…? Words appeared – then and now and when!

*****

What if now is then and then for now was used?

Put down paper. Put down pen.

So confused.

Returned to sleep again.

*****

What if then is now and now for then transposed?

Picked up paper. Picked up pen.

So confused.

Awakened once again.

*****

What if then and now disagree?

What happens next?

Added when, makes three!

Do all evolve in dream’s perplexed?

*****         

What if yesterday to now succumbs?

Is today now lone’s abode?

If today tomorrow’s when now becomes

Will yesterday, today and tomorrow self implode?

*****

What if yesterday was today’s used?

Is today tomorrow’s ken ignored?

So confused

Returned to sleep once more.

*****

What if when, tomorrow, then survives?

Exacerbating bafflement!

Dream’s confusions mind’s disguise.

Absolute bewilderment!

*****

What if now is when and now is then?

Then is when and when is now?

So confused

Awakened yet again.

*****

What if then and now and when apart exist?

Wearied by attempts to understand and solve

These unruly confusions forcefully persist.

Notions’ complex still unresolved.

*****

Then and now and when encore.

Picked up paper. Picked up pen.

Turmoil rages. Thought’s explored.

Do such nightmares ever end?

*****

Meandering words and idle musings full run.

Such rambling verbiage unable to defeat.

Then and now as well as when’s victory well won.

Subjugated retreat, finally, to sleep.
