bead

We
know
we
will
give
it 
up

red, black, red, 
a white one in-between
repeat 7 times and mix
it up, rules are 3, 21, 4
depending on who you wanna
 call, who you wanna ally with
who you are, when you

pay
attention
you can 
see the

curves
a curvaceous past
unchangeable
the future
unknowable,
unknown
know
no
O
O
O
O
Our
present 
a pressure
rounded diamond
our experience
held by temporal
excretions
a smoothed
pearl


we live
in the oo
of our loop
was & will be
bell-shaped
fore & aft
a bead

hung
here
with
you.

thegateless.org Come on over and check out my poetry substack y'all;-) Or if your bored, head to the Zazzle store: https://www.zazzle.com/store/gateless. If you buy anything I lose a bet, so consider that before you violate the digital rules.

This is very visual.  The shapes form.   True the past is unchangeable.   The present a diamond and I see the future still developing as the pearl in the shell, though that isn't what you said.  The reader brings their own treasures to the poem
