|The best way to digest time
is to break it down into manageable mouthfuls
of months, weeks, days or minutes, because
a year is too big to swallow in just one hit.
Unlike the Church which scoffs in centuries
I need my time in smaller bits.
Sometimes even a minute is too big a bite,
at others I can manage whole days without having to chew at all.Ingesting a pandemic
is a new and different skill entirely.
Now time has been puréed for our Covid convenience,
blanded into a pottage drip of days,
unendingly vanilla flavoured.
A fool suggests replacing days with disinfectant,
But there will come a time, it may be soon,
Take morsels of minutes, lovingly prepared,
