Past, Present and Future

A brief poem from the beginning of my novel about the passing of time…

Tomorrow is virginal to
Yesterday’s whore.
Not yet spoiled or tainted
By what came before.
The present our mistress,
Who we flirt with
And paw.
Yet never know fully,
Or ever adore.

    “with whom we flirt” reads better, although it is perhaps a bit literary.
    Anyway, I have read the lot and you are now being followed, or whatever the wordpress jargon is.
    I love the overheard business jargon especially.

      It does sound better and literary, and I think it’s more grammatically correct too. Not sure the rhythm is as good though. I try to just puke poems straight down and change them as little as possible- and now you have given me a dilemma. Ha ha. Thanks for your comment. Going to see what fits best.

      And let me know if you have any examples business jargon you would like me to include. Thanks
