Charitable Days

Days are made charitable by their absence ,
best off intruding someone else’s eviscerated
existence rather than mine ;
Time was when I felt
that I had time ,
some substance of it
in my backpocket ready for
rainy days that sort of thing ,
but no , days are not like that ,
monstrous they are great
impervious behemoths with their
unrelenting array of hours ,
all twenty-four of them ;
count them then count them again ,
absence makes the heart grow fonder ,
in their case absence makes
the days grow longer ,
or so it seems to one with
the imprint of the day’s boot
on my face where it had stamped down
with an indifference peculiar to time ;
tick tock tick tock as though time didn’t care ,
which of course being Time it can’t possibly can it ?
Days espouse nothing other than their own concerns
so days are made charitable by their absence ,
or so it seems .
