The Timing

Cid Corman

This is the moment—
it always was—now proves to
be eternity


Nothing works—
just give it

a try and
you will see.


There are times like these
when nothing makes sense and you
understand nothing.


Remembering life—
what was that all about? and
what in hell is this?


They got to us and
we to you—what more is there
for you to get to?


Even this
passes and
becomes this.
