Speculative Fiction (from Love Notes)
Today I’m working on an article about Speculative Fiction
but there are planets in the sky I’ll never see.
The future is a thing that still means a lot to me.
When I think of space I hear Vangelis
and put my arm around your waist.
Here at the central library the time is two ﬁfteen.
I can see patterns made of water on the glass in front of me.
There are different conceptions of time and other possibilities,
a planet with a beach that’s made of foam.
When I read it’s like a place that I can go to be with you.
