Got any Free Time? Oct. 28, 2023

most don’t

we carry a full docket

of activities and struggle

to find time to pay for them

so when you acquire some

you have options

shopping coffee with a friend

a nap or just stare at the wall

in any case

I’ve heard it’s not debited

from your running balance

that unknown amount

we hope is enough to pay

for the next action

or settle the bill

of another day

on this planet
