Time on the Run

    Time is my rocketship

    running to the sun at hyperspeed.

    My days are strobe-light flashes,

    with my nights in-between.

    Chaotic noise swirls ’round my ears

    the sounds, the voices I know in my life.

    I ride without throttle or lever or gears,

    with wind in my face from the turn of the earth.

    I’m frightened, of course,

    but strapped on too tight

    to ever fall off from my ship on the run.

    Look back, I can’t,

    and forward, I must.

    There’s no stopping it; I’ve tried before.
