The year wouldn’t stop, wait

for us to come along –

everyone has their own pace, it’d say

which is okay, it’d say again –

so we gave it a veil –

go unwatched, we said

go unwatched, so the ones that need rest

are well-rested, the ones that need

water can have all of it as they desire,

the ones that need more time

can have all the time in the world.
