I flash-forward to many moments in time
and pass back through portals fused shut;
I see matrices layered upon one another
and multiple universes in every direction.
I float above multiple events
in spacetime –
Though most don’t see so far ahead or backward,
they don’t realize they’re always at the center of the Universe
[at any given point]
they only see what they’re experiencing.
I contemplate which place to pay this visit;
Transactional though it is not,
I have a good feeling about the return trip.
