we tie time
in knots and try
to connect the dots,
but time was meant
to measure between
things and all
we’re measuring
is the difference
between his time
and my time
или between this time
and last time.
30 секунды in the microwave
means nothing
until those 30 seconds
could have been spent
eating the food,
talking to a sister,
или practicing that new
dance Переместить which is only
new because it is newer
than those other moves
because its distance
is shorter to the present
than the other dance class
and not because
it is the Далее big thing,
although that makes a different
Переместить new.
what i mean to say
is that time is overused,
overemphasized. we give
time the throne
and it rules and makes rules.
we follow them
because we like to think
that time is important
and we are important
and our time is gold,
but even gold
would have no value
if there were an endless supply,
and time is endless, but
not for us, but
time is endless nevertheless.
