time addicts

we always look for the time
when not in a hurry
we scan digital displays
of parking meters
pharmacies
anything
showing
time

when
in a hurry
three times more often
checking our own mobile display
time is slowing down when we look for it
will our journey go magically faster if we know the time

something mankind invented to be in control
seems to only make us more anxious
for something beyond control

  1. Many have lost control of their lives to to gadgets to which they have become slaves. Such is “progress” but we always have choice!

  2. ~ i don’t wear a watch ~ don’t want one nor will be a mobile phone ~
    time, is an illusion, there is only chronological time, there is no psychological time: to “become”, to quote JK ~
