Time Travel

“Since thirty mornings
    are required to make
A day of which we say,
    this is the day
That we desire, a day of
    blank, blue wheels,

Involving the four corners
    of the sky,
Lapised and lacqued
    and freely emeraldine
In the space it fills,
    the silent motioner

There, of clear, revolving
    crystalline;
Since thirty summers
   are needed for a year
And thirty years,
   in the galaxies of birth,

Are time for counting
   and remembering….”

— Wallace Stevens,
   “Of Ideal Time and Choice,”
   in The Necessary Angel, 1951

“When it’s time to railroad,
  people start railroading.”

— Robert A. Heinlein in
   The Door into Summer, 1957

“Everybody’s doin’
 a brand new dance now…”

— Kylie Minogue, 1987-88

Happy birthday, Kylie.
