April 13th

Everything
in ancient times
revolved around
the thirteen-moon calendar.

Could it be
that making our own time,
rather than sticking to nature’s
was the start of
becoming off balance?

It’s a bit mind-blowing to think
that today’s not really
04/14/2017,
but rather
10/11/2047,
since the new year
starts in July.

Rather than being
the calendar of the past,
perhaps
it’s the calendar of
the future?
