spring forward

it is a childish act of communal arrogance
to think we can change what time it is
simply by agreeing to do so

the sun will be nonplussed in its rising
and setting, no stars will be dismayed
the moon will not be late

we have given our folly a name that smacks
of accomplishment: daylight saving time
when we have saved nothing

we make ourselves weary trying to tell time
when time is not even listening
we’re talking to ourselves

Peace,
Milton
