Shutter Snaps: What We Reap (WPC: Time)

What We Reap

 

What We Reap

They looked like two boys on a date.

The rest of us weren’t real to them.

Their hands were pinwheels, their feet skates

gliding through AM towards PM.

The one playing the pick-up game,

didn’t seem to be doing half bad.

“ALWAYS said, all you’ve got’s your name.”

As he quoted his dear ol’ dad.

“When you die, the rest of you rots

under a stone slab: all we reap

is some names and dates: Time, and what

you do with it. That’s all we keep.”
