Love in Fall Valentine

How receptive is the future
how assertive is the past
the future is the feminine
the past is more masculine
the past comes up behind you
the future something you follow
let’s say I stalk the future
with my errors poised and ready
while it sits content as bait
I can’t but go to him
he can’t but stay and wait
this is not protocol or gender
but a longing and its fate
one says return to sender
the other it’s a date
