Future Tense

I’ll continue to make a mess of things
if you promise to remain ignorant
afford me going forward
a dignity I don’t deserve

As far as I’ve scripted it
the truth won’t take us long
and then it’s lies
little white ones that slurp up spectrums
till they reject color altogether
leftover playthings of overgrown children
already bored by the newness of another
and at a loss to fill up future

We could be better but won’t
predetermined me and postdetermined you
struggling with this tense
to find an end unkown
