It's quite easy to remember the future. It now appears in indefinite terms and vague contours but it has not been forgotten. It was to be warm and unhindered and it was to be sparked by an unassuming gesture of blind faith. That's how it was perceived, really. And it always somehow seemed even more palpable than the present. There were warning signs, you know. But they were subtle enough to be easily ignored. We knew that something, some time had gone awry. But no one was able to nail it down. No one tried to nail it down. The future was so near and looked towards all the time that when it finally arrived no one noticed. It folded and dissolved into a memory of itself. As it had probably done numerous times before. No grand gestures, no revelations, just a slow washout. And then, a slow rebuild of the assumption. Realignment of hope. A newly coiled warmth. It's quite easy to remember the future.
