Inconsequential time

Vincent Parker 1948 (South Ozone Park, NY)



Time was and shall be
Even in our immutable
Way of obstruction or privy

Take time and leave it be
While our ability to savor
Suffers immeasurably

Time is consequential
Time is unforgiving
Time is remembrance

Another time it might have been
Yet almost impossible to know
How, why or when but somehow

Time to fly, time to ease into
More or less some other time
While wishing or begging for mine.


About this poem
