Misconception of Time

…..Just right here………………….All along this place…..

…..Then and now………………….The same story told…..

…..All through this place………..Today in yesterday……

…..Down there……………………..Years ago………………

…..And behind……………………..This sidewalk………….

…………………………………………………………………….

…..Almost like now………………..The youth……………..

…..Barely a thought………………..The age……………….

…..For a second…………………….The excitement………

…..Just like then……………………A years’ long now……

 

……………..Walking by this place……………..

………………..Just now, as then………………..

…………………….A moment…………………….

………………Here in the long now…………….
