The future predictive invocable
calls forth something for which I hope,
but roundabout, so unrecognized:
when my son will have had a child.
The past remedial imperative
fixes old things on command:
he will not have been drunk
on my sixteenth birthday.
And now, especially,
there is the continuative declarative imperfect:
I have been being myself all this time.
I have been being this changing woman,
this irrevocable unremedial woman.
