Fearless Intangible Time

That fearless intangible time

Stealing my life

Grabbing one moment

then another and another

Graying my hair

forcing my body into new contortions

Spinning me into complacency

Tempting me with ecstasy

Promising me minutes

That turn into seconds

That flip into decades

Life happens

Corkscrews and pinwheels

Excited screams and deafening noise

Silent nights, irreverent joys

All rolled into a jelly roll of dramatic comedy.

Fearless intangible time

A quickening illusion

Spinning past at supersonic speed

One day into another into another

Barely noticed

Until it’s taken away.
