That Timeless Time - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

looking tense

puts us
in its little invisible boxes

presenting us
with a Future

already past

Black shiny lacquered boxes
all perfect unto themselves

& irrevocably closed.

But see, Love:
tiptoe from nowhere

& open each one
with a mischievous grin

so that like air
we flow from one to the other

& back again.

Time unable

to contain


any longer.
