“time is this rubbery thing”

"Time is this rubbery thing" David Eagleman
Take the time to Google this guy, he's quite amazing. I let his quote carry me 
to this moment of poetry. I realize that this may be a draft that I want to
do more with. Ya know, that time thing: The illusion of it, the quantum
physic of it, the bounce and the stretch of it, the confines of it, it's
limitlessness, oh.. how a girl could go on with it. I have enough time to.
Oh, BTW.. in this moment, I think time is all purple and soothing.

Time is this rubbery thing
it holds you in it’s seasons
it holds you in it’s calendar
it holds you to life and death
it hits the road running
It stretches and bounces
you out into the Universe
while all along you were 
right here.. reading this.

When you were young
there was plenty of it
You’re older and there
is never enough of it.

Time is this rubbery thing
it holds you right where it
wants you.
it holds you like a baby then 
throws you out with bath 
it holds you to the clock
ticking away the time of you

When you think there
isn’t enough of it
there is always more

There is as much time as
there ever was.
There is a much time as
you need

Stretching and bouncing
it’s illusive tick tock to
the rhythm of your heart beat
while you sleep, eat, love,
breathe, do your thing,
live your seasons,  make plans,
read the news, laugh, cry,
hunger, fill the bucket list.

Time is this rubbery thing
Be flexible

I’ll tell ya.  I could take a lot of time rambling about time.  AND..I did.  I took a slice of that ramble and laid it right here for you to ponder.  This early morning rant is going to have me all riled up all dang day.  But then.. I have as much time as I need to let it go.  Oh, look over there. Isn’t that some time passing by?  Maybe I can quick run and catch it.  hhmmmm.

There is as much time as you need.

You have as much time as everyone

Where is the time going?

Age seems to gather time up

A syncopation that loses rhyme.

on the young

It gathers speed,

it takes the lead

gone before the day is over

There is no time.

There is enough time

Time is an illusion

Time is irrelevant

Time gathers speed

even if it doesn’t

It take the lead

when you’re running

ahead of it

Age gathered you up

in no time at all

In whatever syncopation

your rhyme decides to tell

Time is gone before the

day begins

There is plenty of it

when the day is over

If time is what you need

you have as much time as you

ever did.

As much time as everyone

Take as much time as you
