Full Head

The past has plenty of time

All the time in the world, odd
Cliche, once you dwell on it—
Metaphor’s classic mistake,

A concept as a substance,
A resource that can be spent,
Time as something can be had.

And yet, given time as kind
Of rhythmic change, its sameness
Periodic, countable

Waves not wild, the past contains,
Must, all the time in the world.
Even if time’s only God,

Concept uncorrelated
With material something,
The concept’s material

And all in the past, the past
That has all of it, along
With any everything else.

The past has plenty of time,
All of it and all of you,
And you have a little past.
