Draw the curtain look you’re only sleeping
Or is this only what the other you is dreaming
Either way hard to take
Ashen features unmistakably your own
Familiar posture recast in skin and bone
Person from today here is you in 2082

Remove your helmet
First equalize the pressure
No but first take readings to be sure
The atmosphere is safe yes it’s safe
As the ancient one cranes his neck to look
You see his hand’s been replaced with a hook
But it’s clear you’re very much alive It’s 2105

No it’s 2240
No it’s 3415
How can you still be living
What does this mean

You must honor and respect the older fellow
Even as you suffocate him with his pillow
Though you’re strong he was wise
There is much you can learn from the sage
And though you leave and travel back to your own age
You will meet again you two in 2082

What was the look he gave intended to convey
Was there something else he was trying to say
It will all be revealed to you in 2082
