Stolen Minutes

By Robert L. Brimm / April 12, 1996

I steal minutes

Skip to next paragraph

when I can, take

them for my own use,

sometimes to sit

thinking my own

odd-angled thoughts,

sometimes watching

as a pencil searches

its way across

the untracked page,

sometimes listening

to that voice,


except to that part

of the ear

that feels,

more than it hears,

what is said.
