When you’re lucky, the future is empty.
I mean when one is neither tied to wealth
Nor work, then the future is empty.
It is a nice change from the past
Which we fill to the brim with events ;
The future is empty and the past is full.
And the reason why we cannot change it
Is because there’s too much stuff
To rearrange for the present to hold.
