Eternity is in love with the productions of Time
Which is sad, really since they – giddy Truth,
Slippery Patience, and the rest of that sorority --
Wouldn’t spit on him if he were on fire.
“Dude,” God says to him in the cafeteria
As they wait on line, “get over yourself –
She’s just not that into you.” (Eternity
Cannot comprehend why God speaks
In outdated cliches, nor why the two of them
Are still in high school.) “Who’s not into me?”
“All of them.” That God is Eternity’s only friend
Does not always mean they like each other.
