QUITTING TIME

Time is a place
where you sweat
all your life—in order

to earn
the freedom—to finally
leave it behind.

But it never quite
works that way. It seems
you're perpetually

running
yourself ragged,

chasing
after one,

by running
out on the other,
until—one

day,
the other

one
finally
up and

runs out
on you. Which
is much worse. Because

then,
you're not

only—out
of a job. But

you're stuck—anchored

down,
suffocated—with such

an
enormous,
fat, disgusting

glut—of potential
earning

power,
that
you

definitely
won't be going

anywhere—
ever again.
