I am Time Fluid

I am time fluid,
Not quite accurate, never precise
I get there when I get there,
Incensing others to incite  
their fear that I won’t appear,
at the minute they expected,
Maybe feeling a bit dejected -
or rejected in their plans...
But I do arrive eventually,
Them feeling resentfully -
Evidently not noticing that
I breeze past all in productivity,
Easily gaining time lost in front-end
Meeting deadlines speedily
In flexibility,
In lucidity,
I AM time-fluid

About this poem

I wrote this poem this morning while on the train, on my way to work, running a few minutes late. Ironically, the train stalled one-stop away while writing the last few lines.
