For the present there is just one moon,though every level pond gives back another.
But the bright disc shining in the black lagoon,perceived by astrophysicist and lover,
is milliseconds old. And even that light'sseven minutes older than its source.
And the stars we think we see on moonless nightsare long extinguished. And, of course,
this very moment, as you read this line,is literally gone before you know it.
Forget the here-and-now. We have no timebut this device of wantonness and wit.
Make me this present then: your hand in mineand we'll live out our lives in it.

How many times today is my heart going to crush my throat, eh?
