A Schedule Poem by Alexander Julian

A Schedule



A schedule doesn't give time.
It lets us concern time.
We have time for a schedule when nature fits.
Calendars aren't gravitational orbits.
Earth remains what it is.
See the clock?
The clock changes depending on nature, not depending on books.
Books are inexperienced means to history.
People get figurative.
Humanity works on a change in the works of time.
Leave the agenda on the table.
Do people look at it?
Do people really read it?
Do people know themselves from it?
Magic isn't always guaranteed.
Hands connect with flesh according to the dramatic seconds on a clock.
Guys live until they're dead.
A schedule doesn't give us more time, and, it doesn't give us less time.
Calendars aren't pulling us into orbit or altering gravity.
Earth remains what it is.
My wristwatch can't arrest me in orbit unless I imagine it does so.
Besides, what happens when the clock is broken?
Without any imagination, the clock would always "give" us the time.
Animals live in time, but, they don't give us the time.
"Time is an invention."
Maybe, but it's not our invention.
Design is at existence including work, play, and rest.
However, a schedule doesn't increase, decrease, or maintain planetary rotations.
"A schedule gives you more time! "
Yeah, that's unscientific.
