Real time

Is the challenge

The poet lives in

Languid time

Elastic

As eluded to in

Infinity

Obscurely 

Measuring

By an enigmatic gauge

Ever laboring

At unlocking boxes

Oh what a curious occupation

Especially for those

who do not seek 

thé public office of it

I’ve abandoned

The study of other

After so much abandonment

I now study all

and horticulture

That which does not leave

... on two legs

 

Thé gathering 

And from large glass windows 

Peppered with tropical beauties

I collect all the bits of me

To shyly share

With visitors
