Tomorrow has no choice:
It must come,
even if it could wish to stay away from
what it will be.
Looking up from the present into the future,
we see it
approaching, not hurrying, not slowing
of our fears or hesitation;
our holding on
to wishing it away or over with:
No good willing this moment to be longer & outlast
after multiple warnings and
in spite of
all our preparation,
still turning out to be
we never thought would come.
has no choice.
from 'Out' in Its Inside-Out & Orange
Fiction is the lie that tells the truth ... (Neil Gaiman)
