Later, you will be right

or earlier, error
being a matter of
premature or posthumous
application of an answer

to a question not now
present,  but also a
matter of laziness,
the query stated

without the precision
necessary to make the
answer fit:  hand in glove,
key in lock.  Your only

chance is now.  If
it happens, you
won’t know it,
having already vacated

the exact moment,
the faultless articulation,
for some lesser but
more attainable experience:

walking the dog, for
instance,  or healing the nation.
Cooling the planet of
our fevered rectitude.
