The Way It Is Now (a poem)

The Way It Is Now (a poem) by David A. Church

What I don’t get
is how you know
the differences, the options
that force a definition
upon you without awareness.
That’s what I don’t get.

All the alternatives,
more than can fit inside
the mind, a change
in time that affects
all departments
of your life.

How can you tell
that what you see
around you is supposed
to be there,
is best for all concerned
and doesn’t fail anyone?


David A. Church
