Cache of Hours (Hour Fourteen)

I found a cache of hours

Behind glass that said,

“Break in case of emergency.”


It was an emergency.

I’d played the grasshopper again,

For I was no ant.


I broke the glass.

I took those hours,

To avoid failure,

But there was a price:


My well-being.

After all,

Nothing is free.
