Time

Time


Time slips in
Like a cold breath
On a winters morning
Before the sun comes up

Time shuffles
Like a deck of cards
On a green felt table
In the back room of a whiskey bar

Time plays pogo
Like a jumping stick
At a sidewalk fair
In sweet black Harlem

Time slaps faces
Leaving lines and traces
Like the signs of December
In early September

Time is an abyss
Deep and dark
Wide and untried
You can hide deep inside
Its canyons

Time is a foe
Let it go on its way
Let it stay if it may
But it will betray your ego

Time is a friend
It will send you a gift
It will give you a lift
It will let you drift
On its ocean

Time is a lover
Providing cover
For you and your other
To find refuge

Time is benevolent
Malevolent and prevalent
Cold, calculating and mean
A healer, a dealer, a stealer…and

Time
Waits
For
No one

Thank you, Heinz.
Not much going on here anymore.
This used to be a blazing website.
