Hour 20: Re-verse (The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot)

Let us go, then, you and I

on a marathon

Where we have heard the mermaids singing

If you don’t count the hours,

count the minutes

minute by minute


Let us write our verse

Never looking back

Never looking ahead

Writing in this minute

Filling up this moment

In a minute

there is time

For decisions and revisions


Let us go, then, you and I

Where We have lingered in the chambers of the sea

And when we arrive at full stop,

take time to review

And find the words

from those minutes

from those verses

which a minute will reverse.
