Mr Was

Mr Was (illustration)
Mr Was only was, never is
The was of the moment is his
The is never is, because
Then is the now of Mr Was
Miss Where’s never here, never there
Nor is she ever nowhere
She’s never where she is, because
Miss Where’s only where she once was
If on some lone, distant side-street
Mr Was and Miss Where were to meet
Could their was-never-is-ness together
Turn never-ness into forever?
