Time Matters

      Inspired by the painting of Dali

         "The Railway Station at Perpignan, 1965"



Your spikes uphold Light;

I'm on a journey home.

          time matters


How shall I be remembered

when my bones no longer ache?

          time matters


There will be no one on the train,

but a heavy load of empty luggage.

          time matters


People, offer no comfort 

---no need for pretense.

           time matters


Do not worship but

embrace of this gift

          —of life.
