Take My Time (fragment)

Take just now, for instance;
I was chasing
the wobble of the Earth’s axis
in delight;

take that second
from me. It’s yours,
offered in the spirit of
wormhole and string theory.

Take my time from me —
don’t need it.  I have faith
in a true eternity contained
in however brief the time left

will be.  It will be
enough.  That’s 
my favorite word now,
“enough.”  Take that, too.

I have had enough of it as well
and so I recommend it to you,
as it goes well with the excess time
you’ve taken off my hands.
