Controlling Time 2012

       Controlling Time


You do change, and

It is a stranger and surprise.

Eye shape, vagina too.

(I do not know what penises do).

Lips up and down too thin, askew;

Creeping, drooping going on while sleeping.

Up, down, in, out, crepey


(and other parts) have had their use.

With not a chance to brace yourself,

You wake and wrink-


There between the brows,

Outside and under eyes;

Lids, brows, sight victimized,

Lost in lies of chronologic- truth,

Wide-eyed and starry-eyes of youth concluded.


Connecting time, correcting time, controlling time –

Impossible, ridiculous!

Perhaps collecting time from birth,

Self-going apparatus,

Mind its own,

Is all we ever do.
