“All The Time In The World”

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 6:30pm

How valuable is My Time

when I have so much of It?

I can get a call

from My Son stocking groceries for His Drive

to Mexico from Vancouver

while I linger in Nova Scotia

with My Shopping Cart in the snack isle

of Sobey’s

an hour before My Manicure Appt.

taking all the time I need

to say Good-bye
