I knew Eternity when I was in high school
He and God and I -- unpopular kids --
Would eat lunch together most days.
Since William Blake can’t keep his mouth shut
Everyone knew that Eternity was in love
With the Productions of Time. (There were
A lot of them and God used to claim
He had trouble telling them apart).
They mostly seemed to find him rather creepy;
“It’s like he’s stalking us; he is always there!
He needs a hobby. Or a life.”
