Time

Ever moving
Three hands, face
Fidgeting

Lend bit of time
Or allow freeze frame
of your face~ a la Medusa

I seek but a handful of moments
From ongoing life’s battle, to regroup
Spent forces

You are historically a villain
Ever facing acrimony at the ink-
Stained hands of lovers and poets

Let us prove them wrong
Defy laws of nature
Become law unto ourselves

Still self I say
Unto you, so that
I can be still too
