oh, tell me, time:
how do I store you up?
where do I keep you still,
who, always rolling,
mocks these mercantile schemes?

am I my druthers keeper?
sticking only wishes,
locked inside of self-deluding dreams,
these walls of my pretense,
unstored with all that nourishes,

a monument to all that

never was
