Today

today
something is to happen

the today I am talking
about
is not this day's
today

but rather yesterday's
today

if in reality
something were to happen
today

that event will 
prevail
as today

and it will not need
our language
our representation

whereas you were deceived
since you looked for time
in the traces of events

I will be benighted
for I will look
for the event
in the heart of
time

today
something is to happen
