time

i guess we all try to go back into it a little bit
a relative of sorts
a visit we spend with glances at the clock
a dinner holding us ‘captive’ better
i have as many places to go as you
and am probably more efficient at putting distance between dessert and coffee
it’s a reach to breach the just ‘get up and go’
after all, that’s what they expect of you now
there’s the word, ‘now’
all you gotta do now is find a way somehow
to just get up from where you feel you got no time left to lend
all you gotta do is just get up in the way you do
and worry little about what they might say ‘bout you
when you’re gone
