“Taking Off My Watch”~by Michael Graves



“Taking Off My Watch”

No automatic alt text available.

Taking off my watch
I was finally naked.

No longer bound by time, and the feeling
that finishing
was urgent.

Trees grow
at their own rate.

Love wraps itself around lives
in its own time.

The Earth moves underneath me
at it’s own pacing. Why

should I not do the same?

–Graves 6/28/12
