Time Must Have a Stop
time does not stop/ time will
because it does not exist.
the suns and the moons masked by the
slow click of ticking clocks
will not last forever.
1,000 years is only one day.
having put out my last cigarette.
this is our present and our future/
so many whispers.
we have spent the summer
Dispersing our ennui over cups of coffee
and afternoons hiding from the daylight.
Every morning could be a promise or perhaps
only more lies in a funereal succession of fate.
every summer dawn could be a promise/
a provocative exploration of our dreams.
