15. Time flows

Time flows like a burning stream
over the precipices of urgency,
always running out
and dashing itself
on the rocks.

Time is the escapee,
on the loose from jail,
elusive and dangerous
pursued by the hour police
unarmed and without handcuffs.

Time is the tyrannical dictator
making laws
that cannot be kept.

Time is the lothario
 seducing with pseudo passion
bent on one way satisfaction.

Time is only late at the altar
or the traffic accident
or the deadline.
Maybe it is always
closing time.
