A Stint

Time... And the self-betrayal caused when we waste  it. (Outside of an art gallery in Santa Fe, NM: Image: Sandi Martinez)

A stint in time isn’t what

it seems

a tear and a crack in the air rip’s at the seams

So many days in yearning

for the things inside that are burning

And yet, time is a thief;

a glance toward those whom might see

which is sacred, is taken

A stint in time is only what it is…

the breakage that occurs

when we take what is most stolen…

Time

And the self-betrayal caused when we waste

it
