Inscribed Memories by David Fekete


Watching, I muse on the flirtatious waitress
Waiting on tables like I wait on time:
Paying my necessary dues to work at hand--
Expecting time to pay me my due sum.

        But time stiffs those who wait.
        We count our misgivings too late.

Given birth like a digital clock
Without instructions, numbers pass
Unsignified--unless we wake by some shock,
Shook, we wonder when we thought to pause

       In efforts to want a time to last
       And yielded to work at hand time we
               regret as passed.
