D A Prince – From the Future

From the future

We are their past, and just
as we look back––

on crinolines and slavery,
the South Sea bubble,
stays and periwigs,
chastity belts,
the drowning of witches,
how flat the earth is––

the future will look down
on all our proud invention

and laugh

and laugh

and laugh

and laugh

and laugh

D A Prince has two full collections from HappenStance Press plus a pamphlet, Bookmarks, published in 2018.
