Intimacy is one way we confirm the reality of now


This age is the age of now
Which is nice because reality is also now
The past is memory
The future's possibility
and in the now we live and move
and have our being
Ontology is now
and many other things are now
whether we know it or not
Wherefore we accept and live within
a vast penumbra of vagueness
Wherefore we are given means to 
fix ourselves within the penumbra
Wherefore we have intimacy
with ourselves
and with others
Wherefore we have kisses
