Past, Present and Accounted For

The problem with the past 
is that consequences say, 
"Here we are!"
                      in the moment
of now of which we think
that's all there is:
                         the causality

of connectivity says,
"Cut the child in half!"
and a lie becomes the saving

grace of life
                     and we are not 
                But the child
with two mothers, father
unknown, forces 
the revelation of love
through a lie all can see.
We should be so fortunate
if our consequences came close
to that --
              a love that cannot
bear losing what it has given
life to.
