When Then Is Now
Byron Hoot

I do not want to wait until the day
after tomorrow to see what I am
looking for.  Hunting has taught me
a patience but not for that which
is to come the day after tomorrow
ad infinitum.  When that which is 
known is known, the presence of essence
is no delay.  Sometimes, though,
time and circumstance seem willing 
to conceal the obvious.  How awkward
to say, "I am ready." and nothing happens;
how awkward to say, "I know what I am
looking for." and see nothing.
The day after tomorrow will have to do.
