Sorcerers of Tense

I turn to her on the corner and say:
Think how hard working I’ll be being
this weekend
. Less than a minute later,
a woman walking down the middle of the street
says to her partner: We
wouldn’t have known
what we know now
if we hadn’t gone and seen it
for ourselves
No stopping to think,
easy as heart-beat or breath.
