We Live in the Future

For we can always see and feel much that
The people in old photos and newsreels
Could not:

That their clothing and automobiles
Were old-fashioned,
That their landscape lacked
Skyscrapers and other
Contemporary buildings,
That their world was black
and white
(and haunting)
and gone.

 – Robert Rosenstone (as formatted by Ryan North)
