Reminders

Only when it is time and when the time comes,
oh
but look at how time
runs off the face of the clock.

Lock up your daughters
remember
still waters
still run deep

keep an eye on the time though
watch the time go slow or so
you think,

I drink time as if it’s fine wine
savouring each sip
the glass empties
quick enough.
