Maybe Will

This is an old prompt for “carry on tuesday,” found at

Where, now? What is the last?
A copper house, a wire clasp.
Two grasping lilies in June.
I spoke too soon.

When, now? When do I feel?
When is the tangible task?
When do I reach my arms to the sky
Without a Why?

Who, now? What is a vase?
It must contain a flower.
But what if it seeks, and looks, and hates
At every hour?
