Todd and the Time Machine




Todd and the Time Machine

Todd’s time machine
has three settings:
time was
time is
time will be.

the time travel sickness
hits him
like a five alarm flu.

Returning through the time hail,
through the accelerating centuries
he hears his wife yell
from the ever present
from the basement stairs:
I’m turning off that bloody time machine
your dinner’s getting cold!


The subject of the day over at dVerse is “Time and What if”

    Haha, I love your basement time machine, Jim. At Christmas, the Buddha told me, forget the past — it can’t be changed; forget the future — it’s unknowable; and forget the present — I didn’t get you one. I apologise, and doubly if you already read that one. It seemed apropos.
