On Time and Wisdom


I’m older now,

exactly eight seconds older

than before I began this poem.


And in the time it took

to begin and reach here,

I’m now both older and wiser.


Older because

well…

frankly, that’s how time works.


And wiser because

I now know that not everything I do—or think—

is interesting enough to write a poem about.
