will happen and happened

Butterflies and bees drink crocodile tears
a scientific curiosity
true to the last letter
an important element, salt
they need for survival

range of knowledge and experience
I lacked
but this is not that lustrous one.

Can you feel your future?
Can you measure it
with reason and opportunities?
Sometimes life comes swiftly
or enormously slow
like an atomic decay of 800 years.

“A meteor fell through space
into earth’s atmosphere
didn’t stop falling”
breaking through a roof
into the kitchen where
a mother was cooking dinner.

Every moment is impermanent
every moment a surprise
Do you think California Chrome
will add the Belmont
for the third jewel?
