timeless

8 years ago

1

we spent four hours together after dinner that night
when I got home the clock hands were just edging toward 7
I convinced myself the battery had died

2

five minutes before the meeting I panicked, what were we going to do?
you spent half an hour calming me down
and then we walked into the meeting right on schedule

3

I started noticing
you always got the projects done on time
but hadn’t even started an hour before
you had time for everyone
the rest of us could barely keep up with ourselves

4

if I watched the clock hard enough
when you were around
I could sometimes catch the flicker
between real time and your time
