TINKER TAILOR

Count it all you want to;
it'll never

add up to anything—
time

isn't here
to satisfy;

time
is not flattering.

If anything,
time is this

super-sheer
spool of organza—

which
we cut up

and make into
tasteless, in-

decorous
clothes and handbags—

then walk
(and watch others

walk) around in,
pretending we all look fine—

pretending
to conceal stuff,

pretending—
they fit.
