Mastering Time



When is one to that found,
Found the infinities to that all,
All the greatness to that slow,
Slow motion to that fall,

Fall off of a wall,
Wall with a blow,
Blow so downwards, fall,
Fall into blue ground,

Ground so blue and round,
Round and timid, it calls with a pound,
Pound goes down, time then falls,
Falls into pounds will,

Will of platinum, palladium, or nickel,
Nickel so light, but with a will,
Will with time so fast and slow,
Slow into fast, time shows,

Shows into that speed,
Speed with to that will,
Will of time to that shows,
Shows in light to that falls
