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
