Proleptic Poetics

Death has never happened yet,
If we’re considering death.

If we’re considering death,
We’re nobly forward-thinking,

Our minds are on the future,
The undiscovered country,

The far horizon,
The unknowable

Mystery of destiny,
The forever never yet

That may surround us,
That does surround us,

But is not us, cannot be
Within our experience.

Life has made us witnesses
To a certainty

We will never look back on,
Never remember.
