“Future” A Poem by Winter Leblanc ’20

You and I are sitting on a dusty shelf.

Fragile, instruments of time, China Blue.

Cracked as our smiles, weaseling through the glass.

The future is fragile like teacups,

stored high on dusty shelves.

In the kitchen,

we like to call,

The Now.

Tonight, we draw the wooden spoons and spatulas,

from the bowl and clink the sides of teacups until,

we can’t hear ourselves think.

The room is cacophonic and pregnant with our music.

Our song,

call it something like;

“Everything that will be,

once was

And everything that once was,

will be”.

We are obsessed with it,

as it slides off the porcelain curves of our bodies.

You and I are sitting on a dusty shelf.

Fragile, instruments of time, China Blue.

Smiles teasing us against the glass.
