Timekeeper

2020-12-07

there are no hours to waste
except for the countless hours
i waste every day. no time to
frolick about, screaming in the streets
like a child who cannot hear their own voice.

no time for air guitar,
drumming on a desk,
conducting the orchestra of
the oven, sink, and fridge.

no time for
settling,
misery,
meddling,
a little time for
wizardry.

another day passed
and not one ray of
direct sunlight hit my skin.

my allegiances lie
with my desk, yet

another day passed
and not one word of
poetry hit paper,

my complaint is not
with my desk.

one thing
to waste
one day
and
another thing
to waste
another.

the best advice i ever received
was:

keep your watch on
while you sleep.
