Right Now

 
What am I left with?
A semaphore signal I don’t understand
some counter-force operating underhand
and a rocky faith
which keeps trying to tell me
“all is well”.
How can people be so damn sure?
I draw an open blank
and say “maybe … maybe not”
then cling to my cup of coffee
take a deep breath
and think “right now, this is what I’ve got”.
