Can once again?


Back track,fast forward

Or repeat or skip or cycle

Through,however you choose

To beat,keep,kill,waste

Save or use it, Time will

Creep off when you thought

You’d sewn it on properly,

This time,it will fall down

The grates in the gutter under

Leaves for someone else to

Retrieve as they walk past,

Someone else to pocket, a

Bit of luck, a bit of extra

Glinting between them

And a coin for a split second,

No nostalgia,just a penny

Someone else dropped

Their hand flew out of

Pocket to feel a

Vacant spot where a

Button taking ten

Minutes to sew on and a

Minute to buy, once was.
