time is on my side

but space is not
on my side

sit up lie down sit up breathe

and breathe

(a recipe, not mine, for tom yum paste --
add shrimp or not
depending on how you feel about the little buggers


and sit up and lie down
and breathe

now this is muscle and this is fat

Continuing to begin

it's out of synch
the time it takes to begin and the time is takes
for the word to reach my fingertips
and what's left at their end
is what has already happened, stopped
and must now be restarted

gone are the days too when you could count
on strangers stopping
a set of jumpers under the backseat
and the free time to give you that jump
you need to get going

or the push down the hill
hope you know how to use a clutch

Thinking of deleting my blog

rather than starting again, but
I have decided it makes more sense
to restart and take a new view
of time
than to stop what might only appear
to have stopped on its own.

If you're going to leave a car idle
for a long time
then disconnect the battery cables
or the battery will die.
I learned that the last time.
