The Present

I future-focused when I was a kid.
I didn’t prosper in the here-and-now
in college in the 60’s, when we bid
farewell to past and future, trying how
for better presents – change that would allow
a shot to every group our culture missed.
(We mostly failed to honor that old vow).
At last I’m here, and have no bucket list.
