The damned rush
While patience crinkles the skin 
To either side of the eyes

Boxes are efficient
Units per time go quick
Standard periods command premium sentences

The ignorant prosper
No watch
Without what minute is it

Germination takes as long as it takes
The universe is expanding and dying
It's in no hurry to do either

Either or is the devil's offer:
You don't have the life for both
Until you do

Walk, see that slower gait
Trudge, trundle, trickle
With a sky whose stars crawl instead of shoot
