"The Happy Fungus Hunter"

In the temporal art of words,
They can sometimes refer
To past and future both. I like

The idea that a natural
Historian writing of the current
State of biology in 1892

Thought himself either
Happy hunting fungi or a hunter
Of the happy fungus.

It's a trick of the art of words
To first create and then delimit
Time past and time future,

Then allow us to shuttle
Back and forth on this loom,
Itself itself unweaving forever.

Secrets inhere in here.
The person parsing greater joy
In the fungus or the hunter

Discovers the past, internal,
Happier and external or, out there,
The happy future, self-referential.
